I'm looking for a DOS based Stress tester. Something similar to Prime95 but fairly easy to use, and perferably bootable.

Can you use it in windows? Or do you need a bootdisk?

Boot disk, or at least a simple DOS program that can be setup on a boot disk.

Just download the ISO, burn it and you can boot from the CD

Out of curiousity, why a DOS-based tester?

Incase windows craps its pants, or to prove it has to do with something in Windows.

Then use a knoppix-based tool. DOS-based tools can't do half as much for you. Using Knoppix will get you results 10x better and allow you to accurately determine bottlenecks and hardware problems. DOS will just sit there being unable to address much memory, use a dual core, or most feature of a computer.
