Win 95 Startup

I just got my new machine running Win 95. I want to test it out with
DESCHAL. This is the first day of my Win 95 career, so what I am about
to ask is probably trivial.

I wanted to create a shortcut for DESCHAL to provide all the command
line parameters. Right now, the property sheet of the shortcut says

Target: "C:\Howard's Files\DESCHAL5.EXE"

I want to use I/O redirection to save the output to a log file, but
appending ">> log" gets me nowhere. It seems that win 95 doesn't know
how to handle this I/O redirection request, and passed it to DESCHAL
as a parameter.

How do I fix this? If I can get this right, I can put it in startup.
