Bob, To open up a command line box in xp - type "cmd" in the -->run box - that will bring it up - then type in any command you desire. Let me know if you got that running. P.S. Where is DOS man "Trapper" ???? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ -----Original Message----- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Bob Noble Sent: Wednesday, 05 February, 2003 07:12 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Hey Vic, How do you stop that dos type screen in xp?
