    You should be able to click on Start>Programs and then locate the "MSDos Prompt" entry and click on it. But if there is no entry for "MS Dos Prompt" under Programs do this to get a prompt,

    Start>Run, key in the word COMMAND and press enter.

    BTW, you can also add an icon to your Desktop to get an MS Dos prompt, too.

    Right click on an empty spot on the Desktop and select New>Shortcut. Now in the first dialog box key in the word COMMAND and click on Next. Then click on Finish.
