    Could somebody tell me how to start up my pc in ms-dos mode without starting windows? I tried hitting F8 key but there ain't such a command just like older OS.

    Thanx in advance

    XP is built on the NT kernel, not DOS. There is no DOS layer with XP. What is it you are trying to do?

    98 boot disk
    would do it if you have XP installed on FAT

    I'm trying to create a startup floppy that enable the cd-rom to work in an empty (no OS) pc.

    Try - you should be able to get or create pretty much any kind of boot disk you like from there.
