quite a bit while playing or booting up the game?

EMM386 : erreur irrecuperable de fonctio
nnment privilegie #17 - appuyez sur ENT
ReE pour redemarrer.

does this mean i have a RAM problem or HDD issue?

TIA,
Kelly

Probably a RAM problem, as EMM386 is an Microsoft's expanded memory
manager.

To get more informative status and error messages on bootup, add /V to
the line in config.sys that calls emm386.exe, as follows:

DEVICE=drive:\path\EMM386.EXE /V
