    Ah that's one way to achieve it (although I've a hunch that getting dosbox going will be simpler that getting XP and 8 to coexist).

    The only thing I'd add would be to make sure you have made system image backups and also used the option to create the Manufacturer's Recovery Disks (assuming there is such an option) before embarking on adventures with XP.

    I certainly remember those punches, Jimbo - prior to that, we all carried a little steel punch-block and stylus for punching data into 8-track flexowriter tape. None of the early machines had a screen, of course, just columns of neons which showed the data in binary form. You may have seen the 'turrets' (attached) - 600 of these 2-valve units formed the centre of the early computers: many of us carried one converted to act as a tiny radio ... plug it in to a suspect socket, and if you heard music, the socket was OK.

    Thanks for the memory.
