First of all let me give you a background, I may be going about this problem the wrong way, so if you have any other ideas let me know. Our company is in the middle of a Netware to Win2K/Win2003 migration. One of our applications currently requires a netware search path to a folder on the network. The way that works is; Netware somehow appends those paths onto the user environment variable "path" . So I am tring to do the same thing with a login script/batch file.

So I assume I will use the set command kind of like this:
net use K: \\Servername\Sharename /yes
Set path=%path%;K:\folder

But I probably need some logic in the script to see if the path has already been added so it doesn't just keep apending on everytime the login script runs. Any Ideas?

Right, I know I can go manually add it  and make it static, but that would require that we have to go from machine to machine and touch every machine, and do that again if the something changed. I would really like a way to add it with a login script.
