i'd like to be able to make "command.com" the default command processor for
my dos based applications that require it but want to still be able to start
"CMD.EXE" manually

What I mean, is, if I put a short cut to an ms dos program on my desktop,
how can I set it to call "COMMAND.COM" rather than "CMD.EXE" ? or does it
know automatically ?

For each program you want to run in command.com:

make a shortcut to command.com
in the shortcut's properties, Program tab, edit the Cmd Line: entry to
something like:
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\command.com /C prog3.exe
where you add the "/C programname" after what Windoze made.

Be sure to set the Working Directory to the place where the program you want
to run resides.

And there you go.
