    Try:

    Code:
    cd "Program Files"
    The reason cd Program Files doesn't work is because Program Files is viewed as 2 arguments becuase of the space between the words.

    cd c:\progra~1

    Its called truncation and was used for the old DOS systems where file names had to be eight characters or shorter but it still works in XP

    Try this
    Code:
    cd C:\Program Files
    pfff. 'cd program files' works in xp <without the quotes>. It might be that your are misspelling it or it does not support it in 2000. Check out http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...us/ntcmds.mspx. Even though its for XP, all commands should work. Sorry couldn't find a decent 2000 command list page.
