winXP does not have a startup disk like win9.x the partitioning and formatting functions are found on the winxp cd. boot up from the cd and you can access it. if you have 2 partitions or hard disks you can use winxp's computer management feature to set up partitions and format including dynamic disks. i am not sure but i think software raid is possible through winxp.

Windows XP does not use a Dos based startup like windows 9X. You have to download the special boot disk from Microsoft and put it on a cd yourself. This is how you boot into the installation process.

You can create the startup disk of winXP. I have read this in a article but I can't remember how to do . And I think you should use the CD to boot up.

I think that there is a way to install the Recovery console, which is sort of like a "Boot Disk". However, you have to know the Admin password to get onto it.

Anyone ever actually found a use for the console? I haven't.

currently looking at a litescribe drive at staples, due to its ability to label the CD shortly after being burned.
