    U can install DOS 7.10, which will add an option for booting in DOS in BOOT LOADER! So u'll hv a dual boot system with XP and DOS.....

    U can find the link by searching the forum, I'm sure it was posted somewhere in the forum!

    I hope you havent forgotten the old way:

    Press F8 just before the windows bootup screen comes in and in the options given, choose Start in Ms-Dos mode.
