Download from an intranet

I'm trying to export some info. from our intranet site to my "A" drive but I don't have enough capacity on the floppy disk. I cannot use my "C" drive because it refers back to the servers "C" drive not mine, as with "D" and "F".  Can I fool my laptop "C" drive into thinking it is actually the "A" drive. Or to put it another way, can I download to "A" and have it go to my "C" drive. ???? I'm using Windows 98, IBM Thinkpad 600. Thanks..

net use c: \\servername\somthing.

Try doing the following in your autoexec.bat(ps...i would put a pause in there to abort if it doesn't work)

pause
rem control break the above line to get
rem out of the subst
subst a: c:\
