PXE boot error: Memory Allocation system halted

This issue has been solved. See solution.
We have recently aquired a dozen or so HP 8200Elite PCs. We are required to use Altiris to adapt them to our system.
The problem we are having is that: whenever i try to boot from a PXE boot enviroment, the computer loads the drive, finds our deployment server whcih then gives it an IP address.. but then, the pxe boot enviroment halts with the error:
memory allocation error
cannot load COMMAND, system halted
I have searched the Altiris Knowledge Base and have followed instructions as per KB35816
Unfortunately, this has not worked.
I still get the same error.
On top of this, i have flashed the bios, to a previous version and its produced no change.
Thenk I changed it back. Still not change.
I do not believe this computer to need extra memory, as it has 3Gb.
Does anyone have any ideas? Has anyone found a solution after the config.sys file changes have not worked?
Thank you in advance for any help given.
