The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for MS-DOS, versions 1.x, 2.0, and 3.0


When you initialize Works on a network, use the /N flag. This flag tells Works the location of your user directory. The command format for using the /N flag is as follows:

WORKS /N path

When you use Works on a network that is accessed from workstations with different graphics adapters, use the /G flag. This flag tells Works which monitor you are using. The command format for using the /G flag is as follows:

WORKS /N path /G <screen_driver>

In this format, <screen_driver> is one of the following:
