* reinstall your XP box and make it dual-boot with DOS. This is easy;
make a primary FAT16 partition, put DOS in it in the usual way, and
make an extended partition with a logical drive for XP.

* Split some space off the end of your XP hard disk, partition it as a
logical drive in an extended partition, format it with FAT16; then
you'll have hard disk space you can write from DOS.

* install NTFS drivers on your DOS boot disk.
