Hi Ron:

Since you already have a FAT32 partition, you can very easily
install DOS and a small program to allow your computer to boot
straight to DOS on that partition or WindowsXP.  If you are
interested, I'll tell you how to do it.  The only
"difficult" part about doing this is creating the D: drive
(or partition) and you have done that.  The only
restriction is that D: must be a PRIMARY partition...
it probably is.

Let me know if you are interested.


Mark, KD4D
