I'm on a danish keyboard, on which you have to use ALT-
GR to make a "\". The problem is that DosBox doesn't
accept this thus you are unable to mount any directories
directly inside DosBox. A workaround is using an
english layout.

This is on a Windows XP SP1 system.

    Hey. I'm on a Finnish keyboard, and i need to use ALT-GR for
    "\" too, and the \ wont work for me either.
    I guess i have to try that english layout..

    I'm using the Finnish keyboard too :) and, as the DosBox
    documentation states, you can use / instead .

    So to mount C:\ as C, type MOUNT C C:/

    The Mount command output displays Drive C mounted as local
    directory C:/\, but that makes no difference.
