Hi all,

I have the following problem both Win2K and Win98SE:

On the Win2K box the following line works fine (and echoes the name of
the host)

puts `hostname`

But other commands like "dir", "cd" and the like don't work... What I
get is, eg.:

C:\script.rb:1: command not found: dir

with "script.rb" containing the line:

puts `dir

Strangely 

puts `dir *`

doesn't complain about missing commands - but doesn't work either (that
is nothing returned).

FYI, I'm using the Windows installation kit for 1.6.4 (ruby164-1.exe)
from  the pragmatic programmers (Thanks a lot, Dave & Andy!).

Any help and/or ideas.

I'd really like to use those to get some scripts going.

TIA and happy rubying!

Stephan
