I am running a 4 user win98 peer-to-peer network that has a dos based program run over it. all machines must access the program through a shared drive of f: the "server" machine must also occassionally be used to run this program as well. I need to know the autoexec/config.sys line to create a drive f: which is just a link to my local c drive. I know it can be done I just don't remember off the top of my head.

If its a map from a remote computer, you can use:

net use f: \\server\sharename

If its local, you can just use:

subst f: c:\
