I don't have an NT Perl here, but &cwd should give you the current
working directory (You might need to

use Cwd;

)

to change drives, use chdir.  I'm not sure about the active state
distribution, but with the standard distribution, you can always unix
style path names, thus

chdir('C:/here/there/everywhere');

print "<p> Current Dir is ";
print Win32::GetCwd();
print "<p>";

# assumes that such a directory exists
Win32::SetCwd("d:/INetSrv/i386");

print "<p> Current Dir is ";
print Win32::GetCwd();
