Why do we have to use *DOS??  RedHat doesn't, Debian doesn't, LinuxPro 
doesn't, OpenLinux doesn't, SuSE doesn't.  There is nothing we can do in *DOS 
that we can't do in Linux.  This has been debated exhaustively in the past 
(check the archives), and it has been decided already that we will not be 
building such a complex multi-boot system and relying on an inferior OS to do 
the installation.
