While booting I come up with a static device error, after that I get a "insufficient far memory" error.  I installed 32 more meg of memory and still get these errors.  Does anyone have the answer.  The cd-rom is a 4x?

What the computer is indicating when it shows "insufficient memory" errors is related to your systems RAM.  But it does not mean that you do not have enough memory, but that you do not have enough memory below the first megabyte to allow an application to start up.  So it would not make any difference how much RAM you install in this situation, the end result would be the same.   In order to correct this you must go into the start files and see what is taking up so much memory below the first k of RAM memory.  This area will be filled with TSRs from applications that do not remove themselves at the end of a session.  Or it might be a huge number of drivers, probably a lot that you no longer need but were not properly removed.  Go into the RAM memory and edit all of your TSRs and drivers listed in there.  If that does not help, try going into DOS and at the prompt run the memmory maker command. Between those two actions you should be able to find a lot of new memory in the sub-1kb memory.
