I'm running a ThinkPad T42, INTEL 1700 Mobile Centrino, 512 mem with XP Pro
SP2 fully updated - I'm new at windows, I'm very new at XP.

What I want is ostensible very simple.  I just want to boot from CD (T42 has
no floppy) into FreeDOS.

I downloaded fdbasecd.iso and burned it to a CD.  It boots to the menu
screen.  When I hit <ENTER> to continue I get

Invalid Opcode at 7445 4000 0283 0000 E36E 0000 0000 1B2F 0246 DC00 1B29
7C81 E36E

Is this ISO even SUPPOSED to make a boot CD for the use I've described?

Better yet, is this the best route to get a faster running DOS program that
the XP DOS emulator does?

That is, my old DOS program under XP does a VERY delayed reaction thing
(sometimes several seconds) with key presses, a problem I never had under
the OS/2 emulator.  (My old brain can't handle the technicalities of
maintaining OS/2 anymore.)

I just want to run a DOS program decently without having to dance a jig to
do it!!
