one of the delights of windows-interfaces with the [presumed] human bean on the other side of the monitor/touch-screen/whatever is the way you/one/i can only do what the program composer/gui designer presumed any halfway sane user ought to want to do...

*g* - this tablettything aside, I'm still pretty well back in the (dr/novell) dos age, with occasional excursions into whatever varieties of unices're running on any boxen i still have remote access to (not many, now) and whatever vorghembegotten variant of windows i'm obliged to wrestle, on borrowed machines, for the functionality i need as i can get no other way - so far. a certain firedrake r. is certain i'll evolve(?) into a unix bod, or possibly a linux user eventually; another friend confides i'm headed slowly but surely towards bsd...
(i, of course, have no opinion worth consideration in this matter; and protests that i'm happy with dos - save for things i want to do as aren't yet possible on top of it... - are summarily dismissed as being the wails of the outdated unwashed.)
I know DOS used to run easily on a 20gig hard drive; logically, it might be possible to run a DOS system on a 32gig memory stick. (Linux Ubuntu can be run entirely from a 32gig memory stick, thumb drive, whatever you call them.) The sticks are made in 68gig and bigger sizes now, but DOS might have trouble dealing with that much space.
If you were to get your box backed up entirely, system and all, to such a memory stick, you could get the windoze boxes to boot from the stick. Then you would not have to depend on the windoze boxes' hard drives.
