    Does Windows XP have full DOS support?

    I know it has the command prompt, but does it have full DOS mode?

    If not, can I use Dos 6.2 on it? I have the disks for that.

    thanks

    Windows NT,2000 and XP are true OSs in that they don't simply provide a GUI over DOS like all the windows 9X series do. As such XP doesn't have an underlying DOS that you can boot into etc. If you can't do what you need to in the DOS shell then your only other sol'n is to set up a dual boot with XP and DOS.
