Try this:
http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/PowerToys/Networking/NTComPrompt.asp

It will give you a new item in the context-menu of any directory or drive, allowing you to open a command prompt right there.

or open a dos-box (cmd.exe) type "cd " and drag the dir in the dos box. if the dos-prompt was in another drive, you have the change only the drive with "x:"
