I need to make my A: drive point to my C: drive.  For drives other than A:, I know you can use subst to substitute one drive for another, but this does not work with A:.  Does anyone know of a way to do this?

what if you drop a disk in A: first, then use
subst r: a:\ <Enter>

Wait - I don't think you'll be able to do this anyway - subst will need to use a different drive letter - you would have to point it to an unused drive letter.
To do what you're asking, you'd need some simliar functionality in disk manager to mount a drive as a path - and this can't be done with a floppy drive - only physical disks...

sirbounty, the command I'd like to run is subst a: c:\ so that a: points to C:.  This does not work, but I'm sure there is some way to accomplish this.
