Yes, opening a DOS windows on Windows 98SE, and 

set AXIOM=c:\Progra~1\Axiom\mnt\windows

and then start


then Axiom runs without the error message.

But )summary and )copyright still give an error message:

Bad command or file name
which presumably refers to 'cat'.

Continue with

)sys tm_axiom

or start a new DOS windows and 


produces Xverbatim:Xchannel:promptXXlatex:\red$\rightarrow$\ XXXverbatim:

where X stands for some graphic character (not all the same).

Under XP SP2 DOS window, 


simply returns to command prompt.
