Those are certainly possibilities. It might also be possible to create a TSR that uses the "internal function extension" that can take care this for you automatically. I'm not sure, though -- you might actually need to prefix each command not on the floppy with a special prefix (e.g., instead of "program" you would need to type "f program", with the "f " indicating that you know the program is not on the current floppy drive). If you end up needing to do the prefix thing, it may not be any better than the existing workarounds.

Just a thou8ght.
