WordPerfect has confirmed that the following error message may be
displayed on a system running WordPerfect 5.1 with MS-DOS 5.0.
To correct this error, use the BUFFERS= and STACKS= commands
in the CONFIG.SYS file.
This information applies to Microsoft MS-DOS version 5.0.
The following commands must be added to the CONFIG.SYS file to resolve
the above error message:
(where X is 16 or more)
The STACKS command needs to occur AFTER the BUFFERS= statement, and
BUFFERS needs to be set to at least 16. The default number for BUFFERS
is 15 for machines with at least 640K memory.
The STACKS command supports the dynamic use of data stacks to handle
hardware interrupts. The syntax of the command is:
(where n specifies the number of stacks and s specifies the
size [in bytes] of each stack).
The stacks are created within the buffers; therefore, the STACKS
command must occur after the BUFFERS statement.

Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this
