I use a very similar layout, except I use a separate drive letter (U)
rather than "c:/root"
This allows me to access either a "production" tree on a server using
"NET USE" (BTW, the MS "distributed file system" works just fine), or a
local "test" tree using "SUBST" without having to tinker with the mount
I would like to be able to run two such systems running simultaneously.
If the root was set in the environment or command line, and the mounts
are taken from /etc...
For help on using this list (especially unsubscribing), send a message to
"email@example.com" with one line of text: "help".
