If it's XP, click the start button, go to all programs, then open accessories, then click on command prompt. type in cd [whatever file name to get to the one with the the ycompress.exe and the yoshi's island rom with "\"s (not "/"s)]. Eg:

This is what should come up (usually)
C:\
if not type in cd .. until you get to this (if you don't know how to mess with the command prompt for the rest of the steps) Once at C:\, type the address of the location of ycompress with the yoshi's island rom:
cd Documents and Settings\All Users\Nintendo\Editing\SMW2 Yoshi's Island

That should change your C:\ to have all that after it. Type it in exactly because you can't copy and paste. It also helps to change your yoshi's island rom to be one word (no spaces) when using ycompress. The hardest part is to access ycompress without it closing.

I have XP, you have to do it this way unless someone has a better idea.

You can copy and paste into a command prompt under XP. You copy whatever you want to the clipboard, and right-click and hit paste. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Alternatively...search on MS's site for the XP Command Prompt Here powertoy. With that installed, you can merely right click the folder you want to open the command prompt into and just open one right up.

There's something similar to this for Win98 as well.

Man, I didn't know either one of those (including Dan), I'm going to have to get caught up.
