    dos help please

    I know that these get old fast but i need some help. i dont use DOS all that much so i am lacking in a few commands. if you would help me we can let this thread die quickly. this is what i need:

    1. list the file in the current directory (A drive) and make it pause at each screen.
    2. make a new folder called "Homework"
    3. change to the homework folder.

    Ive tried any way i can think of. quick help is appreciated.

    I don´t really remember, but I think that "-A" might make the listing pause.

    1. a) list current directory pausing at each screen "dir /p"
    b) list directory of A "dir a:\"
    2. creates folder Homework in current folder "md Homework"
    3. "cd homework" (capitalization is not neccesary)

    extra go to a lower folder "cd.."

    Hope this helpes :)

    1. To make it pause at the end of each screen full of listing type:

    dir -s

    2. In your A:, if thats where you want the folder, type:

    md homework

    3. To move to this new directory type:

    cd homework

    hope that helps
