I know... but Win95 was after NT 4.0's cmd processor.  [Yes they succeeded
in substantially creating NT 4.0 before introducing the sad 9x series, wasting
millions of development hours on a now-dead OS line.]

The patch to foo around with COPYCMD [which does/doesn't work on 9x?
I have to check...] really looks like overkill. Bill; I can't find a 
bootable NT4.0
partition at the moment, could you email me just the output of

copy /? > help
xcopy /? >> help

so I can review?  [If they are sent to stderr, use 2> instead of >]
