The usual way is to hit F8 as it says 'Starting Windows [95/98/2000]' before the Windows logo itself comes up.

Word of warning though - on 2k and XP this isn't 'proper' DOS, but an emulation of it, usually for the purpose of troubleshooting.

If you'd rather, you can go into BIOS and set it to boot from the Windows CD - I always find that easier when doing a completely fresh install. :Smile3:

Just remember to set it back to boot from the hard drive after the first reset!
