How DOS-like is the CMD prompt in WinXP Will it allow replacement of windows-critical files? That is, in the past when I wanted to update a file that couldn't be updated while XP was running, I booted to win98SE on the same box, and did it there. Or when I had ONLY win98, I could boot to native DOS and do it there. Because of getting a new computer, I don't think win98 will run anymore, so can I use the CMD-wimdow/prompt? Or am I still in windows then, to such an extent that a Windows file that can't be modified while windows is running, still can't be modified? What do people do? I think the new computer will have a floppy drive. Do I boot to dos 7 (or some version that understands long file names) from the floppy? Thanks a lot.
