[NA-User] DOS environment for Win XP using Dual-Boot

If you use both Partition Commander and System Commander,
you can have as many partitions as you like with all the
you'd like.

On my Pentium 133, I have 3 primary partions:
1.  True Dos - MSDOS 6.22
2.  Win95  for software that only runs under 95/98
3.  WinNT 4.0  my main operating system.

When you boot, System Commander brings up a menu
with your choices.  Im my case, if I select NT4.0, I get a
second NT menu with a choice between Dos6.22 and NT.

I'm sure that System Commander could handle XP, it can
UNIX, Linux, BEOS, OS/2, and others.

Works very well.  YMMV
