  You can also use MKDIR instead of MD.
  If you simply type "MD PATHNAME" the directory will be created 
  in the momentaneous direcory. Means: You create a subdirectory.
  In pure DOS the directory name must not be longer than 8 letters.
  MD is a command internal to command.com and needs no 
  other file in order to work.
