Does anyone know of any way to tell windows to avoid the 200MB I set up for a RAMDISK?

I have a particular problem with DVin Lite, a software that will not run on WinXP, so I need a way to boot my computer to a Win98 environement without having to reinstall.
I read the instructions at http://www.heise.de/...lish/99/11/206/ but don't think I am able to get it done and it means I have to uninstall WinXP anyway to do it.

Windows NT4 embedded
Windows XP embedded
These two versions of windows (no win2K version) are a specially designed for running from read only devices such as CDROM.
There’s also a workaround for running Windows 95 and even 98 which the big companies such as IBM, DELL and HP used to make a rescue/install system.
I am not sure but you can use a special version of 'windows XP for tablet pc' that can run on Intel CPU (this OS designed to run from tablet/handheld pc)

This method only works on a single hardware platform. Since it boots from CD, plug n play does not play nice here.
There is no way to disable plug n play in Win98.
If you have a single hardware platform, but the PCI cards could be in different spots, move the card(s) to the other PCI slots and let Windows detect the hardware change before finalizing your CD. For example, a SCSI card that could be in PCI slot 2 OR PCI slot 3.
Take your time and read the steps carefully. It's best to tackle this project when you can devote your full attention to it.

BTW, I did some checking on the ERD Commander as well as the XP Embedded as others have recomended, and I don't think that these are what most of us have in mind when trying to make windows run directly from cd. Just my opinion though.
