XP doesn't support DOS. And 256MB isn't nearly enough RAM to run XP decently. What are you trying to do?

Your question has no meaning.
There is no DOS in XP or any other modern version of Windows. XP can run many DOS applications but this is emulated and built into the OS. There is nothing that needs to be downloaded.

Maybe if you could describe the problem you are having we could help.

MS-DOS is a 16 bit single task Operating System.

Windows XP is a 32 bit multi tasking Operating system.

The two are incompatible.

The days when DOS and Windows co-existed ended with Windows 98. Then DOS hosted Windows 98. You are expecting Windows XP to host DOS. Cant be done.

If you have to have DOS 5 or 6.22 you are going to have to install it as a completely separate Operating System.

DOS is copyrighted so it can't be downloaded legally.
