The easiest way is to create a shortcut then edit the properties
to change the start in folder.
You can also add a command in the Autorun section of the registry
to CD and that will apply to any prompt window
(provided it doesn't override it with a cmd line option!)
BTW If using W2K or XP it's worth doing a "help cmd" at the dos
prompt, the XP cmd is quite powerful - it even has Unix style file
and folder completion available etc... But most of the power is
switched off by default for backwards compatibility with DOS...
