Cool! I wonder how you got an opportunity to choose English, I never  
saw that in my installs.

You're right about subst, but I chose to write up the share/map drive  
method as it's easy and can be done in Windows Explorer, rather than  
typing obscure commands at a command prompt.

Alcohol looks cool, but my Scottish heritage led me to the free  
ZipGenius method. Did I mention it was free?

ATP? What's that? Never used it, I suspect it's just another instance  
of my lack of technological bravery <pptthhh>.
