Default A list of commands

I think CF should gets its member together and create a sticky for commands that XP uses such as cmd and msconfig and make it into a sticky... And we should comfirm that all the commands work on XP, and describe what they do. My donations are simplpe

cmd:Command its a prompt you can use the following commands in it
ipconfig: gives information on your IP
ipconfig /release: gets rid of your IP addresss
ipconfig /renew: Gets you a new IP address or reset its.

msconfig
Can customize your boostartup to make your reboot go faster.

netstat, it shows you the i.p. adresses of the servers you are connected to over the internet. this is useful for finding who is controlling viruses/trojans

Default Re: A list of commands

depends on what packages the commands are for. each different tool has multiple command line options. On that note i would probably stick to the most commonly used ones.
