You can rename it.  The cmd.exe shell also supports stderr redirection
built in so you can avoid using redir completely, ie:

c:\> gcc -c foo.c 2>errors.txt

Since this is the "standard" way to do this under cmd.exe, I prefer it
when possible (there are some things that redir does better, but 99%
of the time I use the cmd.exe functionality).

These are on all DOS platforms; put DJGPP first in the path or rename them.
Not specific to Win2K.

> own redir.exe

Don't use it much :-)

We should enhance the docs to make this more clear.  If you ever use the
LFN TSR you also need to edit this file.  Best to do it all at once...
