Why not try "REM" in front of the line with the error on it. This is preferable to deleting the line altogether and it's easy to remove it if it has adverse effects.

If you use notepad in Windows then save the Config.sys file after altering it.

Might help.

It is a DOS driver for your Yamaha sound card.

Unless you use older games that may need to play sounds whilst in DOS, it is safe to REM the line, as explained at click here
