No "Restart in DOS" prompt in shut down

I own a CTX AMD K6 computer with win95 version 4.00.950B and I do not have a option under shut down that asks me to Restart in DOS. Just Shut down, Restart Windows, and Close all programs and log on as new user. ( I am set up as server for faster RAM access) I asked CTX but they say this version of windows does not support it. Is there something I can get or change to have this option. I know I can restart and hit F8 key, but this option would be a little easier. Appreciate any input. Thanx!

Hmm... CTX seems to be wrong.  I know OEM SR B supports it, I just checked :-)  There is probably a setting in the system registry that would let you change it, but there must be an easier way.

All versions of Win95 supports it...

Commented:
Run POLEDIT and check your policy. That option can be switched off from there.

Can you give me a little more information on Poledit? I have never used it before and am not sure what option in the registry needs to be turned off. Thanks.
I thinks its the one below.

[HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WinOldAp]
"NoRealMode"=dword:00000001
