It is because a DOS program (most likely the network driver, NDIS2,
packet driver, whatever) requires more than 64 kB of runtime memory.
The reason for this limit is that the bootrom only has very limited
memory space available in lower memory. What network driver are you
using? Have you tried the packet driver instead of the NDIS driver?
