invalid setting

When my computer boots I get this message"Invalid setting MSDOS Sys File  ORIG-DIAG-BOOTMENU=<NIL> and when I run scandisk in DOS I get this message "scandisk detected an invalid long filename entry  on this drive but was unable to fix it" How do I fix these problems and are they related?

yes they are- rem out the DOS Sys file and then try.  I think that file is unnecessary anyway!

Open your msdos.sys file with notepad, copy and post it here.

To solve the first problem i need to see your msdos.sys file, the second problem has something to do with directory size. The problem is that MSDOS only recognizes 64 chars to be a valid path
( i assume that you use Win 95 )

Send the Msdos.sys !

See ya

at the command prompt type edit edit msdos.sys find the invalid line and delete it. This will eliminate the error.

HEY I HAVE SAME PROBLEM

try add some lines
MSDOS.SYS must have over 1024 kb

the end of MSDOS.SYS look like this:

;The following lines are required for compatibility with other programs.
;Do not remove them (MSDOS.SYS needs to be >1024 bytes).
