Are you using DriveSpace or DoubleSpace?  If so, this may be you're problem and answer.  Let me know and I'll post it as the answer.

The information in this article applies to:

          Microsoft MS-DOS operating system versions 6.0, 6.2, 6.22

      This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.

      SYMPTOMS

      You may receive the following error message if you are using MS-DOS DoubleSpace:

         Error: R6003 - Integer Divide by Zero


      CAUSE

      This error message can be caused by corrupted DoubleSpace files or incompatible terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs.

      WORKAROUND

      To work around this problem, do the following:

        1.Copy the DBLSPACE.BIN file from Disk 1 of the original MS-DOS Upgrade disk set to the root directory for your host drive. For example, if your compressed drive is C, and your host
          drive is H, type the following at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER:

                copy a:\dblspace.bin h:\

          To determine your host drive for drive C, type "dblspace /list" (without the quotation marks) at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.

          Note: If there is an existing DBLSPACE.BIN file on the host drive but it is corrupted, remove the attributes from the file before copying a new one to the drive. For example, type
          "attrib h:\dblspace.bin -r -s -h" (without the quotation marks) at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.

        2.Expand the DBLSPACE.EXE files from the original MS-DOS disks. For example, type the following at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER:

                expand a:\dblspace.ex_ c:\dblspace.exe

          DBLSPACE.EX_ is located on Disk 3 of the 1.44-megabyte (MB) 3.5-inch disk set and on Disk 4 of the 1.2-MB 5.25-inch disk set.

        3.Restart your computer by pressing the reset button or by turning the machine off and then on again.

        4.If you have not eliminated the problem, restart your computer again. To isolate the problem, press the Clean Start function key (F5) or the Interactive Startup function key (F8) when
          the text "Starting MS-DOS..." appears to eliminate unnecessary device drives and TSRs.
