I'm working on XP, and DOS won't recognize a certain folder name just because it contains a space in it. I've tried underscores, wildcards, and tildes, no of which work. Can anyone tell me how to get DOSBox to recognize the folder?

Just rename it to comply with ms-dos naming convention, that is, eight characters for name (not including spaces and such) and three characters for extension (not needed for folders/sub-dirs IMHO).

type dir to see what name the directory actually has. also - dosbox supports command line completion much like linux does, so you just have to type the beginning of the name and then press tab.
