I was wondering if there is any way to share a drive through a command prompt using the net command or some other command in Windows 95.  This would be really helpful for what I do.  Thank you!

of course.

write in the command prompt:
net use i: \\computer-name\resource-name.

for example, in my computer at home, that running on dos, I'm writing "net use i: \\semuel2\i-drive" for the other computer is semuel2.

I'm sorry, I need to be more specific.  In dos using the net start command, my other computers can not see that computer that used the net start command in dos.  I was wondering how I share the drive of that computer trough the dos prompt.  I'm sorry I was not more specific.  This is my first question.
