I know I can create a wait or delay by using the ping command but is there any other way to delay the .bat file with another command in XP?  I don't want to download the resource kit or any other download since this .bat file will be ran on other computers and I don't want to go through and download each time.  I've done some searching but haven't found anything yet.
