Mapping logical drives in w95

How can I map an area (directory, partition, etc) of my hard disk with the letter I want, in w95?
I want to replicate my networked pc (with G: and F: drives) in my stand alone laptop, in order to run hard coded windows applications (excel spreadsheets with links, in fact.
Do you know if I can "deceive" my applications in my w95 laptop. Please, I don't want to format my hard disk, nor create new partitions, if possible, unless I don't loose information

Use the "SUBST" command
Drop to DOS, and type:
SUBST X: C:\PATH
Where X: is the virtual drive you want to access  and C:\PATH the true full path of the directory you want to become X:
Once you have tested this and seen it worked, put that in AUTOEXEC.BAT
