    It does not look like you are typing in any folder for it to go to such as 'cd c:\thisfolder\' etc, you can also use 'cd ..' to go down a folder.. Works on my 98 and XP machines.

    AFAIK I know DOS keeps a list for each drive. Try

    cd d:\path\to\files
    d:

    Ok, quick Ms-Dos tutorial.

    cd\directory\whatever\anotherdirectory

    cd directory\whatever\anotherdirectory

    will get you to where you want to go.

    cd \

    brings you to the drive root

    dir = ls -al
    dir/p = more

    a: = drive letter change

    On my desktop there was a file called "cd" without an extention, I deleted it, tried again and it worked...
