Create a folder or directory in which you'll work on version-controlled projects. We recommend a folder called development in your private space on the computer. In both UNIX and Microsoft Windows 95/NT, you can create such a folder by opening a command prompt window, changing to the desired disk location, and issuing the mkdir command. for example:
[u:\] mkdir development [u:\] cd development [u:\development]
