Subject: [windows2000] String Comparison in CMD or BAT script?

Anyone have an elegant solution to this?
I have a series of servers, all beginning with the same 4 letter string.  I'd 
like to check for the first 4 letters, rather than the entire string.  In other 
words, how can I do a LEFT$ in a script?
current solution that blows:
if '%computername%' == 'TCCA01' goto skip_notice
if '%computername%' == 'TCCA02' goto skip_notice
Thanks for any assistance.
