I think your problem is either the "daa" image of Windows XP you downloaded is bad, or it didn't burn to your CD correctly. I would suggest you burn it again, making sure you burn the CD at a speed no faster than 4X or 6X. Use the slowest speed you can, and you're more likely to get a good, complete burn.

If you have a Windows XP CD that has a good, complete burn, the installation should proceed as follows, and you should never see the DrDOS screen.

* With the WinXP CD in the tray, reboot your computer. During the boot process, If your computer doesn't show a message telling you to "Press Any Key" if you want to boot from the CD (not in those exact words), you'll need to reboot again, ... this time, hit the key that will open the Bios Setup (it will usually the "Esc", "F2", or "Del" key).

*Once you're into the bios setup, find the setting that will allow you to set the computers boot-up sequence (or Boot Order) and make sure you set it so the computer will try to boot from the CD/DVD drive first. Once that's set, exit the bios, ... being sure you save the new settings. The computer should now reboot again.

*Now that the computer is set to boot from the CD/DVD first, you should see the following message: "If you want to boot from the CD "Press Any Key". You need to press a key within 5 seconds or the booting process will automatically bypass the CD and go on to boot from the hard drive. If that happens, just reboot and start over.

*Once you've pressed a key, the installation process will start by copying several files to your hard drive. Once that's done, a blue screen (not the BSOD) should open that offers you choices of installing Windows XP by pressing "Enter", ... Creating a new Partition, ... or Deleting an existing partition.

*If you get to that screen during the installation process, you only need to follow directions provided by the installation process and your operating system should install correctly.

You should not recieve any messages about DrDOS during the installation process IF the installation disk image you downloaded was a good image/iso/daa, and you performed a nice, slow, complete burn of the files.

Hope that helps a bit.
