here's the story:
before I even start up my computer, my friend being a "show off" and all demonstrates that he can bypass the security. when he did it, he reminded me of the safe mode startup. now I feel mad since he made a fool out of me for not knowing this since I didn't have this on mind. anyway, I'm just wondering if it is even possible to load up a pure DOS application ( such as "command.com" ) before you see the logon screen in XP. thanks.
