K:\: => C:\
Over the weekend I bought a HP a6537c, which didn't land up even working, will be taking it back tomorrow. It has Vista Home Premium, whatever that means, although it is 64 so I did like that it wouldn't be any problem addressing 4GB and beyond. I obviously us the computer for other things but if I didn't have this little side job I probably could live without a computer completely, if I had to. Well, that is kind of a lie, because I do have a recording card that I love, which poses another issue PCI slots now a days are hard to find, my only redemption was it had a modem that was PCI, and I would trash that and use the one and only PCI slot. But that is not the purpose of this post.
Is there a way in Vista to emulate the DOS substitute command. My client has a network drive and I don't, so when I test the program I use a DOS window and enter subst f: c:\. This acts in a global way not just as an emulator and reassigns all calls that would go to the F: drive to C:. I am presently working with Windows 2000 which I like quite a lot but would like to address more memory and I think the upper limit is 3GB, or at least from what I understand it displays 3GB. I am not sure what it gets me if I get new equipment and still use Windows 2000, probably not much.
Thanks for you help,
