With the latest Drive Image you can run from Windows but I think you can create floppy's and it will work as if in DOS if you boot with them. it will also write strait to your cdrw drive but you should make sure it splits the image to fit on the CD's in Advanced settings in program. If you go for the software check the BOX side to make sure it works with XP if it does not, it is an old version
