Subject: [ct-user] Booting to DOS with Windows ME?

I saw a message on one of these groups a month or two ago pointing to a file
somewhere, that explains how to patch the startup files for Windows ME to
restore the "restart in DOS mode" option that earlier windows versions
supported. (the option that comes up during the shutdown sequence in Win 98,
95 etc). I thought I had saved it but unfortunately did not. Can someone
point me to it again? I'm rebuilding my system as a dual boot Win ME/Win XP
and have found, not to my surprise, that I can't run TR-log or CT under XP
without some significant tweaking.

I'd appreciate any help the assembled multitude can provide. Once I get it
running I'll gladly offer my new-found expertise to anyone with questions.
