i have installed zipslack and have been having trouble getting a windows xp system to boot into DOS in real mode.
i am currently getting 'the cpu is in v86 mode' error which specifies that zipslack requires 386/486 real mode and that this can be achieved with EMM or a VCPI server etc....

to achieve this? if not perhaps some pointers as to what the entries in those files need to be.
thanks much.
