Because there is no DOS in xp some applications won't run even in the compatibility mode. You will have to create another partition and install a Win9x on it and use a dual boot setup.

Ok I was musing last night at work, and I came to the conclusion that if I wanted this software to work I would have to run it on win98 however the laptop is designed to run on XP as are all the drivers

So I thought about installing win98 as a second O/S partitioining the H/D now if I do this will win98 beable to use the drivers installed on the machine currently for XP

How would I acheive this


Any Help appreciated
