[h-e-w] Subshell to a network drive

How do I use a sub-shell on a network drive?

I frequently use a sub-shell in Emacs (m-x shell) instead of the Windows DOS prompt. DOS doesn't let me cd to a network drive. UNC's aren't supported. I also tried cd'ing to mapped drive letter. These methods don't work from my ordinary DOS prompt nor an Emacs sub-shell.

MY WORKAROUND:

1. From Windows Explorer I can send a file on a network drive to Emacs (using gnuclient). 2. Spawn a sub-shell. It prompts me from the directory location of the file I just opened!

Why does that work? And is that the only way I can get to a network drive from my sub-shell?

Jai
