COMMAND.COM has a limit for environment size. You can change the size by adding the following command line into the CONFIG.NT file

shell=%systemroot%\system32\ /p /e:size

where "size" is the maximum length in bytes you want COMMAND.COM to allocate for each program. The default is 256 bytes and the maximum is 32K.
