"Out of environment space" error

Yes, it is a dual-boot NT and Win95 machine.  Yes, they're on the same
partition.  Please let me know why you think this is not a valid
configuration.  I believe it is a well supported configuration by
Microsoft.

I did however, determine the problem thanks to help from all those
who answered.

My shortcut to CYGNUS.BAT looks like it was migrated during the NT
install.  That gave the properties tabs that were unexpected by
Suhaib and Earnie.  I believe it also continued to run CYGNUS.BAT
under COMMAND.COM as opposed to CMD.EXE.

I created a new shortcut and the properties tabs are as expected
along with the "Out of environment space" message no longer
occuring.

Thanks to all,

Todd
