Stupid Dumb Stupid Question...

Why can't I seem to change directories in Dosbox? I'll go:
 mount c: /home/drigz
dir c:
correct contents
mkdir c:\test
cd c:\test
contents of z:, where i still am
i'm sure this is a silly problem - but i think i used to have the same thing with dos bootdisks - what basic thing am i missing?

In DosBox, you must define what directories are acting as what drives...

Once you do that, then you can do a change drive and directory to them...

Plus I thing you switch drives by just typing the driveletter followed by the colon,...

Been a while since I played with DosBox, so I can't remember.
