running Concecutive batch files

Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
I would like to execute two batch files located at different paths concecutively, that is only when the first one completes , then the second should start and preferably in the same window.

call batone & battwo

If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

I did.. I have something like :

cd xyz\abc\deployment\tomcat-6.0-5.1.1\bin
call startup.bat
cd\
cd C:\def\123\svn_root\assembly
call menuscript.bat
cd ..


The first bat fires up the tomcat server and the second is suppose to deploy additional plugins in the same window , If I do this , the tomcat first fires up .. fine .. but the second one fires up when the server is still booting up .. Is there a way to know if the first process has comepleted and then the second one starts ..??

The problem is likely in your startup.bat, but I'd need to see it.
