SUBST is usually the forgotten utility. It can also eliminate
those ugly blanks in paths.  I setup the following in autoexec.bat
(Microsoft software has a tendency to be even buggier when not
installed in their default locations):

[1] c:\p\junk>subst
V: => C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~3

[1] c:\p\junk>cd \progra~1\micros~3

[1] c:\program files\microsoft visual studio>set vcpath
v:\vc98\bin;v:\common\msdev98\bin

I don't think I have used any of that for a year or more!
