Which operating system are you using?

In Win95 you would type where you are

cd MYDOCU~1 (I might be wrong with the folder)

in Win 98/ME/2k and XP I think you can type

cd 'my documents'
or cd my documents

Oops sorry. Forgot what else you needed.

to delete the file you type del file.mp3 file being whatever it is and mp3 being the extension.

When running WinXP I get disconnected via my internal modem if I am using that to connect to the net. My external doesn't disconnect if the phone gets picked up. There are modems that are made to handle things like phones being picked up.
