Possible ways how to install other OS than MacOS X or WinXP may have been posted on this forum in the past. However, due to my knowledge Bootcamp requires WinXP which does not support DOS anymore. Correct me if I am wrong since I'm not a Windows nerd though.

Theoretically speaking, this can be done. Once you've set BootCamp to make you a partition on which to install your other OS, and you let it shut down the machine with the Win XP SP2 disc inside, remove the disc when it boots up by holding down the mouse button. As soon as it spits it out, shove the bootable CD for DOS in there, and then reset the Mini. If there is a bootable CD in the drive, it should then boot off of it. Technically the Windows XP bootstrap is DOS based, it loads a real low-key shell and then uses it to load the Win XP setup program.

If any BootCampers remember, this is where the Windows Setup program loads all those device drivers, and then says "Starting Windows...". Up until the screen resets and gives you the setup menu, you're technically in DOS. So booting a Mini using a DOS disc shouldn't be a problem. The only reason it won't let you before it restarts is it checks for a WinXP disc. Once that check is done, you can replace the disc with whatever you want.

Hope that helps.

You can actually do it, but it's not really worth it.

I got a DOS 6.2 floppy to boot from a USB floppy drive connected directly to the Mini.

Holding down the OPTION key on bootup isn't enough to make it show up as an option, but ReFit ([url]http://refit.sourceforge.net[/url]) can boot from a DOS floppy.

I got errors about the "A20 Gate" missing, so EMM386 and HIMEM wouldn't load, and that in turn kept most things from working.

The "A20 Gate" is some legacy DOS-compatability hardware that PC's still have, but Apple left that and other legacy junk out of their Intel Mac design - after all, why should they care about DOS suport?

As I said, I really couldn't do much with it. Just about everything I tried to run froze up the machine, probably because it expected bits of DOS-compatable hardware and BIOS routines to be there that weren't.

It was kind of neat that it booted, but it's really useless on a Mini. If you really need to run DOS on a Mini, you'll have to use DOSBox or Parallels.
