    I have a program that needs to run under DOS. How do I get to DOS using
    this operating system?

    Clyde Benson isn't very good at anything, obviously.

    Q. How do I get to DOS using this operating system?
    A. Start > RUN > type CMD and press enter, what appears is a MS-DOS window -
    use HELP for commands available to you

    Apparently not; I only encountered him for the first time
    the other day, and I wasn't fooled.

    The sad part is; he probably laboured over this Weapon of Limp
    Annoyance for a week in his Fortress of Stupidity.

    Thank you very much kind sir! You are a good person although I haven't
    figured out for what yet.

    As far as the rest of you worthless bunch goes may the fleas of a
    thousand camels infest your stinky crotches!

    Now Clyde, you got your little peepee whacked last time. You don't want that
    to happen again, do you?

    It says a great deal about you; that you also consider your name to
    be valueless.

    XP has no DOS. You can boot from a floppy that has a DOS on it and thus
    avail yourself of DOS. Alternatively you can make another partition on your
    HD that has the necessary DOS boot materials (you can't find them in XP any
