Why would you want to do this?

What is wrong with using the Dells recovery partition to put the default factory fresh install of XP back on the computer?

There is no need to put DOS on a computer to install XP either.

NTFS is better on a computer than Fat 32 because of the ability to utilize files over 4 gigs in size as well...
