The DOS batch programming language doesn't have a feature to input a variable so given only the old DOS batch programming language you won't get this done.

1)allow user input for the destination of the network computer to copy files from
2) copy a file from the unit POS to the destination

SET /P POS=[Enter the POS to copy files from]
** DEL "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\*.*"
XCOPY "%POS%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\test.txt" "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\"/y
for the format of the pos to copy from i can enter either
