MS-Dos Boot Disk with Fat32

Is it possible to have an MS-Dos Boot Disk with Fat32?  I would like to run some old MS-Dos games without going through windows.  I had no problem doing this with Windows 95, but that was before Fat32.

If fat32 it's the problem, then when you startup your computer hit F8 for the startup menu and hit for DOS Prompt, then you can run your games.

Good Luck

Thanks ORC for your quick response.  Unfortunately, this game requires specific settings.  I have always used a boot disk tailored to this game.  This boot disk now no longer works since upgrading to FAT32.  I have tried the F8 option before, but was unable to get the config.sys and autoexec.bat settings to run the program.  I am sure there is a way, but there is a point when playing a game isn't worth the aggravation.  It would be most convenient using a boot disk, but is this even possible?

Hi ORC,

Actually its a game where you could play ORCs or slay them.  It is called Master of Magic and its a RAM hog.  For anyone interested, its like Civilization except in a fantasy setting.

Thanks for your help.
