Hi there, at school mostly everything on the computers is disabled in XP for exam i try run "cmd" and it says it has been disabled by admin etc etc

so me being the smart cookie that i r i tried command

that only opens command.com from whereever and i can practically do everything i could in cmd

Whats the difference?

i think... but dont quote me on this at all...

i'd say... one is for a 9x or 3x system... and the other is for NT/2k/XP system...

at a guess... i'd go "9x/3x" and "NT/2k/XP" respectively

just included for backward compatability...
