Looking for Command Interpreter

Question: One of our teachers replaced his hard drive on an older computer. He says he reinstalled Win 95 and now when he boots up it takes him to a DOS prompt and asks him for the name of his command interpreter. What command is it looking for? How do you fix the start-up issue permanently?

The IT Guy says:
Your friend's computer is likely missing the file C:\command.com or it has become corrupt. You can replace it by copying it from a Win95 boot disk. Make sure it is the same version of Windows95 already installed on the system. Microsoft has a good article on this problem available on http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q120/8/22.asp.
