RE: How do you boot Windows 98 in DOS?
This is going to be my final post in this thread to clarify everything that has been said.

To boot into DOS when using:
--> Repeatly tap the F8 or F5 key
--> From the Startup Menu choose Command Prompt Only

To reboot PC from DOS:
--> Press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice
--> type "restart" without the quotes and it should restart (Doesn't always work)

Ummm isn't that Windows 2000/XP and up? Because if you goto Command Prompt it is loading to DOS I was under the impression of that.
nope, it's in all Windows, 95 and up... the bootmenu (after installing any Windows) always runs (a part of) Windows, even if you choose "DOS". It will never be true "DOS"-DOS, but "Windows"-DOS. This can give problems with some true DOS applications. It also has implications in memory management, etc...


The "Command Prompt" in Windows is indeed the best known type of "DOS console" though...
