These are not easy to find...and Win2K/XP don't use a filesystem
that DOS understands (no more FAT, it's NTFS), so even if the computer's
BIOS supports booting from DOS, there is likely no floppy drive. People
will likely not have a computer dedicated to running DOS just for compiles,
though it may have to come to that.
I know that Daniel has worked hard to find workarounds for this.
It is just hard to stay one step ahead of Microsoft breaking backward
