Joe ....

On my XP Pro laptop I installed Partition Magic and made a 500 MB FAT 
To use the DOS logging programs I either boot from a DOS floppy (made with 
9x or
6.22) or a CD that boots to DOS.   Assuming your XP partition is NTFS, it 
will see
the FAT partition as the C: drive.

A lot of new laptops don't have a floppy and it's hard to do a SAVELOG to a 
CD, but
you can specify the SAVELOG to go to any directory you want on the C: drive.
