u don't want to do the copy/paste, it takes time to do the copy, then
the paste... do a right-click in windows explorer, and drag it to it's
destination. then select move.
otherwise, an overnight session to FTP it to a unix/vms box and back
down on the nt box (assuming it does not have the ftp service running)
is the next choice..
see the other note in the thread about the microsoft tech note...
