Default WinXP Installing and Dos Booting

Hey all,

Trying to fix my DirectX problem (earlier post) I tried to reinstall windows xp. Only it freezes at about 32mins "installing network". Does anyone know a way about this problem? I have tried four times.

My other question, is if that fails then I need to format. So how do I boot in command prompt to do this and prefably backup my files onto another hard drive.

I have tried pressing F8 while windows is loading and selecting "Safe mode with command prompt", but it tries to load winXP which fails as it is not installed.

Any Help?
