I have started playing with FreeDOS and you an install that along side Windows
XP, on the same partition!  With the correct BOOT.INI, you can select between
FreeDOS and Windows XP.  The downside is that it must be a FAT32 partition
(FreeDOS does not support NTFS), which is not as efficient using disk space,
and is more prone to fragmentation.
