What would be the easiest way to make some aliases for windows xp's cmd, so one doesn't have to enter the same parameters over and over again?

For example,

rmdir /s would become rd (or just rmdir)

Too late; they already thought of that :) the builtin DOSKEY command does this – Nate Koppenhaver Nov 5 '11 at 1:51

You can use the built-in doskey command for this.

For your example, you would type:

doskey rd=rmdir /s $*
