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..

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