Does anyone know how to get DOS to run on a cd? I need to create a start up cd with the command prompt the same way you create a start up disk in windows xp with a floppy and it boots with the A:/ command prompt. Any help links would be great

Why do you need DOS?

A Windows 95 boot CD would do the same.
