thats a batch file. you just use notepad to type in the things you would type into the command prompt. these aren't used as much anymore but they were invaluable during the DOS/Win95 days. they are still pretty handy tools.
Not to be nitpicky, but system admins lives depend upon the use of batch files and scripts. Just because DOS is near death, doesn't mean batch files go with it.
