In DOS, do any of you use a command prompt other than the default (that tells you where you are)? If you don't know, you can change the prompt with the PROMPT command, generally put into the autoexec.bat.

I use "What is thy bidding my master? ".

I want a command prompt that's short and to the point and lets me know exactly what the current drive and directory is. There ain't nothing better than the standard command prompt for that.
