Well, my problem seems to be that I have put this pc together etc. I insert the seagate cd to reformatt the hdd and clear it out... Then it tells me to insert the OS startup cd, (in this case Win XP) and reboot the pc. I have made sure that the order to boot from here is cd-rom first and the HDD. Done deal, When it comes back from being rebppted, it goes into OS [Caldera DR-DOS 7.03]. Its default drive or directory is a:\ so I change it to d:\ and I am able to see the files on the WinXP cd. I try to run the "SETUP.EXE" file but it then gives me this error: "This program cannot be run in DOS mode" after this I am completely stuck.

Any help is greatly Appreciated....
