XP has a command line program, it's CMD and it's in system32, it's also
listed under "Accessories" in the start menu
But it's NOT a "True" MS-DOS, and lots of things won't work with it.
The best way to get a "true" MS-DOS is to setup "DOS" from Windows 98
and then install XP as "dual boot" (in this instance, both OS' can be in
the same partition). This does require that drive C: be FAT32.
