I need to run diagnostic software on an outboard motor on my boat.The users guide for the software says,quote"This disk can be accessed by most IBM compatible laptop computers using a DOS operating system.Operating this program under a Windows environment is not recommended,program stability may be affected."
My problem is I bought a used laptop to use the software and it has Y2K PRO installed on it,then I read the users guide.I installed the software and tried to use it and it does not work very well at all.
I need to know if I can install Dos.I tried bootdisk.com,but when I click to download a DOS boot disk, IE closes.I tried holding down the shift key,and it just takes a little longer to close.
My home computer has 2 hard drives,one with 98SE,and one with XP,so I could reboot 98SE to MSDOS,but I don't want to carry it down to the boat shed unless there is no other way besides loading 98SE on the laptop and losing Y2K PRO,I didn't get a CD with the laptop so I can't reload Y2K.
Is there a solution to this problem?

It appears win2k can't be uninstalled,so I'll buy another hard drive and burn this one.
Thanks anyway
