I have a drive problem that I might be able to fix if I can get a dos prompt from the offending drive. I've looked around the net but all the results that I come up with are for making bootable floppies. I don't own a floppy drive or any floppy discs.

I used my windows XP disk to boot up but it doesn't seemt o have a way to get a dos prompt.

I need a bootable disc that will allow me access to a file called gb_prog.exe that I will have to add to the disk. That file *might* allow me to fix the Norton GoBack related drive problem that I'm having.

...you could use the recovery console from the xp disk (choose the R option for recovery console)...that will give you access to the primary drive (if that's where the gb_prog is)...or you can go to www.bootdisk.com and follow the instructions for making an xp boot cd to which you can add the gb_prog
