I am a new user in OS/2 and I would like to know the commands or utilities used to map a network drive. In Novell network environment, we use "map". How about in OS/2?

NET USE (and some parameters, check net /?) will do. It's quite analog to MAP.

My system just install OS/2 Wrap 3.0 plus MPT and that all. I cannot find the command "NET" in it. Is there any component that I need to install before the command "NET" can be used? What is this? and Where can I find?

In order to use the network drive mapping function NET USE you must have the PEER client installed.  

If you are trying to map a Novell drive, I am not sure that you can use the NET function to map network drives from a Novell server.  However when you install the Novell client for OS/2 from the Warp Connect CD Rom, it should install a Novell folder with a program called NWTools.  Using this utility you can map network drives, capture printer ports, etc.  When you have your network drives mapped you can create an "image" file that stores the current mapping of your system and restore your mappings by adding the following line to your startup.cmd file:

    nwtools <image file path and name> autoexit

If you are using OS/2 Lan Server or Warp Server the NET USE command would be:
   
    NET USE <drive letter to assign> \\servername\exported resource

for instance:

    NET USE Z: \\OS2SERVER\DRIVE_C

would export the DRIVE_C resource defined on OS2SERVER to the local drive Z:

Finally, you could use a graphical means in the OS/2 Lan Server environment.  Open the network folder.  Open the folder "aliases for domain ..." right click on the correct resource and select assign drive from the pop-up menu.
