New-PSDrive - PowerShell 1.0

Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.

More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.

Example(s)
Install a drive called 'SS64' using the file system provider. The drive will be rooted at "C:\MyDocs":

PS C:\>new-Psdrive -name SS64 -psProvider FileSystem -root C:\MyDocs
DIR SS64:

Install a drive called 'S:' using the file system provider. The drive will be rooted at "C:\MyDocs":

PS C:\>new-Psdrive -name S -PsProvider FileSystem -root C:\MyDocs
S:
PS S:\>DIR S:

The parameters are positional, so
PS C:\>New-PSDrive -name M -psprovider FileSystem -root \\Server\Share

is the same as
PS C:\>New-PSDrive M FileSystem \\Server\Share
