Try this If you're running Windows NT, 2000, or Windows XP and need to get to MS-DOS prompt follow the below steps.

Click Start
Click Run or click in the "Start Search" field if you're running Vista
Type "cmd" or "command" and press enter.

dos and command prompt may look simular and in ways they are but they are classed as 2 diff things. dos goes back a long way.
