Mapping Drive Z

Hi ...

    I see two other options post in the list.  First the two batch files
might cause a little havoc when DOS (Win9x / WFW) wants to find the first
batch file if you use a "Call Login2.Bat" if you don't it might work fine,
but I think this is messy.  Second option to put a batch file into the
Start-up group, well, I think that even more messy because you have to go to
each PC to do the updates ... in that case you might as well update all the
short-cut anyway ...

    I would go with one batch file that map "L:" and the changes to "L:" in
the batch files, as long as if can find the batch file in the current
directory, it should not complain about "Please insert disk with Batch".  If
you need a little more help, please feel free to e-mail me or the group ...
it's about time I gave a little back to our community !!! ...
