Any whitespace-containing path has an equivalent non-spaced path.  Using 
"dir /x" will show the equivalent path -- assuming there isn't something 
in W2003+ that I don't know of offhand that has removed those features.

C:\>dir /x prog*
  Volume in drive C has no label.
  Volume Serial Number is 7058-2829

  Directory of C:\

07/25/2006  02:46 PM    <DIR>          PROGRA~1     Program Files
                0 File(s)              0 bytes
                1 Dir(s)  20,910,669,824 bytes free

So, you can use 'cd progra~1' or 'cd "program files"' and it'll do the 
same thing.
