What do you type to open the Uplink directory in Ms-Dos mode.

For me it is first the Program files then uplink then what do you type to get that directory.

I am trying to open that file called redshirt.

C:\>???????????

If your Uplink directory is C:\Program Files\Uplink, you type:
CD \PROGRA~1\UPLINK
Hope that helps.
Also, I don't know how can u play Uplink without knowing MSDOS... :cool:
I wrote a .BAT version of TeleText (you know, on TV) when I was 11 (I'm now 13) ;)

I think the main reason people nowadays can't use DOS is cause we're all getting hooked into GUI's instead of lines of text. I would rather use DOS when I work on 'puters for the same reason as Ajurna. No blue screen of death or need for the 3 finger death touch LMAO. Plus knowledge of DOS helped me when I started working with the consoles in the game.

P.S. Anyone able to tell me what version of MS-DOS the old IBM PS/1 was shipped with. I found a fully working one in a dumpster and would like to get it running again.It boots up using a W98 recovery disk but that's a damn mongrel of a DOS.
