Part II: The Command-Line Environment > The MS-DOS Environment Under Windows XP

Chapter 13. The MS-DOS Environment Under Windows XP

ROAD MAP

  • Windows XP simulates the MS-DOS environment for old programs.

  • You can give old DOS programs as much memory as they want.

  • AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS are alive and well…sort of.

  • DOS compatibility is good but not perfect; you may have problems with some games and old modem and networking software.
