CD-ROM installation

I'm installing a CD-ROM and get the following message after start up, "Program too big to fit in memory"  the program is mscdex.exe which is about 25K.  I have 32M RAM and a 1G hard drive on a clean computer.  I'm running DOS 6.2.2.  I think the problem may have to do with my CONFIG.SYS set up but am not sure.  What can I do?

Hi,

type "memmaker" at the command prompt.  This tool allows you to free as much as memory you need.

Then install your cdrom drivers.

Finaly rerun memmaker to optimize as good as possible.

Byeee...
