    I'm trying to find the means to booting up my system to a
    command prompt so I can flash the BIOS. Windows 9x OSs
    allowed creation of a startup disk and you could kick to
    DOS with it. I have no idea how this is supposed to be
    down with XP. Any help is appreciated!

    Not sure I understand your question, but if you want to
    run DOS with XP:

    -Start

    -All Programs

    -Accessories

    -Command Prompt

    That is not DOS. In XP it is a DOS emulator. I would recommend not using
    that for a bios flash. You can format a floppy with MS-DOS on it.

    You can format a floppy and copy system files to it just like you could in
    9X, DOS. If you search for "command.com" you will find it in
    C:\Windows\system32. Command.com IS DOS.
