How to make liteon dvd 163d region free?

Ok i have just got myself a liteon dvd 163d drive. I have searched the forum and read alot, i have worked out that i need the R1211 utility which i downloaded to make my drive region free. I also downloaded the little proggie that tells me wether it is locked or not. The main problem im having is that in the read me file it says thats the firmware patch has to be installed in true dos mode?/, im running XP and as far as i knew that wasnt possible? so can somone tell me how to apply the firmware hack, sorry if its been asked before but i have searched for hours tonight and havent quite found what i was looking for. If there is a better way to do what im trying to do, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thx peeps

For True Dos Mode, format a floppy disc and copy system files to it (it should be a selectable option when you format). When that is done, insert your floppy disk and reboot your computer, then your computer will not boot into windows but instead you will be in DOS, true DOS.

Ahhh i see ok ill try and work this out, thx for your reply.
