On Windows XP, you have access to the command line by clicking the "Start" button and then chosing "Run...". Type "cmd" (without quotation marks) into the field and hit Enter.

Microsoft Windows [Version x.y.zz.abc]
Copyright and stuff

C:\Windows>_

That says you're operating on drive C in directory Windows. The blinking cursor awaits your commands.

You can simply chance drives by entering <drive-letter>: like that:

C:\Windows>d:
D:\_

And return to drive C in the same way:

D:\c:
C:\Windows>_
