Welcome to the forum, Mike.

In DOSBox you can type "help" for help. For help on the Mount command, you can type "mount /?".

The syntax of the mount command is:

mount d path

where d is the drive letter you want to use, and path is the actual path of the folder you want to mount. So, for example, my qbasic folder on my computer is c:\q. If I wanted to mount c:\q as drive x: within DOSBox, I would type:

mount x c:\q

Then I could type:

x:

to switch to the newly created x: drive.

I think the main advantage of actual QBASIC over QB64 is that QBASIC is an interpreter, and therefore makes debugging much easier. But otherwise, QB64 works very well.

Regards,
Michael
