                            MKDIR (MD)--Examples
 
Suppose you want to create a directory on the disk in the current drive and
use the directory to store all your tax information. To create a directory
named TAXES, type the following command:
 
    mkdir \taxes
 
You could also type this command with the same results:
 
    md \taxes
 
Now suppose that the TAXES directory is the current directory and that you
want to create a subdirectory of TAXES named PROPERTY. To create the
PROPERTY directory, type the following command:
 
    mkdir property
 
                                      ***
