Hi,

We need to map a CD rom drive to a directory in the server root.
We can do it using PassDirectory resource, however we need to write an 
install script which will do the installation of both the server and 
servlets that we have developed on the client machine.
The data will reside on a CD-rom and will be retrieved by the servlets. 
Since user may have different drive names for the cd rom, we will need 
to assign the path during install time.
Alas!, we are using Windows NT/95/98 (so there is no symbolic link) 
Jigsaw 2.0 beta 2.

Is there any way by which we can modify the target for the pass 
directory at install time, without running the jigadmin (user is not a 
technically savy, so we do not expect him to know about jigadmin).

In my opinion,

If we were to write a class to use the PassDirectory resource and 
somehow read the internal "database" where all the settings are saved, 
in a way similar to that done by jigadmin, and then write our own target 
path (which will be determined by the install script) we should be done. 
If this can be done, which classes should i use and is there any 
particular class that i should see in the *.admin classes ?
else what do i do ?

Or is there something simpler ?

All for now,

Nitin Raut
