Six files to set your DOS prompt with. Enter the name from the DOS command
line. If you find one that you really like, you can add it to your autoexec.bat
file with the command
command /c .bat

...or you can incorporate the code directly into your autoexec.bat file.

To restore your normal prompt, type (from the DOS prompt) prompt $p$g

Enjoy! -- Duane Paulson
