DOS is going to be around for a while yet
As much as Windows evolves, the good old DOS window will keep a role.
Whenever I'm on the road and I need access to my network drives through a VPN, nothing better than the DOS prompt to do a "NET USE".
And you got to love those batch files!
It's like the administration of an HP-UX system ... you can use SAM or you can do it with nice and "simple" command line work!

hope this is helpful
Below is a link from the book "DOS the Easy Way" by Everett Murdock Ph.D.
I hope it is not to long, but it is very complete. Any questions about the miterial let me know. Good luck and remember -you can lean a lot from old people, ould programs are no dif.-
Also- the net command is a good place to start.
Computers make sense people

I wrote a tut on MS-DOS in the tutorials section. It sucks, but you might like to look at it.
