Default DOS Questions

Is there anyway I can install DOS after installing XP? I heard that DOS has to be the first OS to be installed? Is there anyway to get around that?

I need DOS cuz I am using some problems which can only run in DOS

well, you COULD using an emulator. I've used one before, it basically opens up another window, even goes through the boot screen and all and starts dos, or win 3.11 or whatever. I dont recall its name though, and have tried to look for it but cant find it. Its out there, though... somewhere.

maybe it was vmware??? or virtual pc??? damn, wish I could remember...

here is a little info on virtual machines (they are not JUST java and such...)

Okay, it IS VMWare... it makes it so a different o/s boots within windows, pretty much fools the host os and they are 2 seperate machine, or virtual machine, and is not a normal shell, but is a complete reboot within a window.
