Hello All,
I just installed DOS box and am having difficulty creating a c directory to run this exe app for a video brick processor i recently purchased. I must preface this by admitting I have next to no skill in a dos environment.
My first command is mount c . Well I have tried numerous commands to open up this exe to install the control software for this video processor.
I type mount c home/philipb
and mount c users/philip/downloads/brick1_software folder/EXE
and it still keeps telling me know directory exists.
Anyone have clear concise input on how to mount a directory so i can get this software cooking and rock some video installations?
Thanks.

Well , if i remember correctly it should go as :

mount c /Users/Philipb/xx

What i do is usually create some special folder for dos games in the documents

so would go as

mount c /Users/Philipb(don't know if you use upercase on your user ... just type it as it is)/Documents/DOS .

Hope you can get it to work , cheers
