Program too big to fit in memory

I downloaded a bootdisk from netbootdisk.com.  I did a little modifying to it to accomodate a find.exe.  My disk is to boot to a network location, and flash the BIOS by copying the flash files to a local RamDrive and running the flash.  My problem is that I'm running out of memory to load the flash program.  I've got 4Gb of physical memory in the system, but I don't know where to modify to make more available.  My config.sys file looks like this:
------------------------------------------------------------
device=himem.sys /HMAMIN=63
dos=high,UMB
files=40
break=off
buffers=30
lastdrive=z
stacks=0,0
install=NetBoot\SHSURDRV.EXE 16384k,D480,N: /Q
install=NetBoot\tunz.com -o NetBoot\boot.zip N:\
SHELL=N:\COMMAND.COM /E:32768 /P
------------------------------------------------------------
If I try putting emm386.exe into the mix, the ramdrive program 'shsurdrv' won't load.

I hope someone can help.

You should try a few of the EMM386 modes

EMM386 can work either with a RAM or NOEMS switch. Both are enabling the UMB memory. Depending on what type of memory SHSURDRV requires a proper switch should be used. Probably NOEMS is the best choice.
