How to I map a network drive in DOS?

Net use is a DOS command used to map a network drive to a local computer. Net use can be ued in a DOS environment such as from a Windows 98 Boot Disk, or from a CMD/DOS session in Windows.

to view all the commands availaible in Net use, type net use /? in DOS to see a list of commands.

Typically, the command goes like this. if you wanted to map the F$ share on a server called "server1", to a local G drive on the command would go
net use g: \\server1\f$
if a password is needed, the remote server will normally now prompt you for this.
