Do be careful and avoid placing something like
mount d:/ /d
in your C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT. I have a second D: drive by Seagate
and once I tried mounting just that and when I rebooted,
I got error messages during boot-up (while the screen was still
in text mode on its way to Win95's bootup):
Sector Read Error:
Abort, Retry, Fail?
After the initial panic (I thought my drive was corrupted by
mount), I "failed" it for about 4 times and fortunately the
system booted up eventually and I was able to remove the "mount"
from AUTOEXEC.BAT, after which the problem disappeared.
I'm not sure if it generalizes to other drives as well, but
I think my mistake was like trying to "mount" before NFS was
running on a Unix machine (I should've known better :) ).
Anyway, said here just so you'll avoid my mistake.
