SPAM
Short for stack page, a reserved space in Windows of 4K of memory that a 32-bit device driver uses to hold data and instructions as it works. The default setting in Windows sets one stack page for device drivers and two spare pages for temporary allocations. The spare pages are called MinSPs, short for minimum stack pages.

Okay how do you increase those on Win 98. I had a laptop kept throwing that error about every 5th boot up. SPAMMin SP's need to be increased. SPAMI looked all over that damn thing and I couldn't find the setting. SPAMEnded up using Format C:. SPAMNow all is better. SPAMBut for future ref. how do you change it.
