I am currently trying to purchace a P.C for graphics use and
to be able to use all my software,I need Dual Boot consisting of Win'95 and NT4 with an exit to DOS.But when I approached some Pc manufacturers they would only support the operating system that had been installed on it when it leaves the factory.The dual support would be the responsibility of the agent.(This proceedure surely puts the pressure on the agent and the manufacturer washes their hands of the whole affair>>>>bad business). My question is,is their any known Pc Manufacturer out there willing to support Dual Boot.The spec of the Pc would be as follows ,,, 300 dual processor,128mg Dimms,8mg agp graphics,4.5/6.0g hard drive.
Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

anto,
I don't know of a PC manufacturer who is willing to support software other than what they have installed on their products.
I would recommend you find a local, knowledgable PC technician to custom-build your computer.
He can install and configure the software that you want to use.
The warranty should be based on that of the components used and the technicians integrity to stand behind his work.
I hope this helps you.
Regards,
Ralph

Ralph,
Your answer is true but,let me give you an example: The last Pc on trial that  failed  was the H.P Kayak xu workstation.The contract group of engineers to our company who are also an official HP authorised dealer stood by their work but when the kayak started to lock and hang for no apparent reason and, after several attempts to reinstall win 95 and Nt4 it failed drastically.They are not prepared to try another brand of PC unless the manufacturer supports dual boot of the above software.
Surely with the ever growing number of software programs/utilities on the market,the demand for dual boot operating systems is high therefore justifying my demands.There has to be some manufacturer out there willing to support dual boot so my question still stands,,,WHO????????????  
Anto.:-)
