Install linux ! Then you don't need to duplicate anything, just run
mprime &; mprime -A1 &; mprime -A2 &; mprime -A3

(I noticed that the -b has gone !
Before (still now according to the readme.txt), it would have been enough to say mprime -B4.)

Also, you won't be bothered by viruses writing autorun.inf, h2.com and the like to any root directory, preventing you from seeing hidden files, etc.
