Network Commands (from the DooM FAQ)
-LOADGAME allows you to start DOOM from a specified save game. Instead of
using the saved game name, simply enter the number (0-5) that corresponds to
the slot you saved the game to on the SAVE GAME screen.
-loadgame <# of the game>

-DEATHMATCH starts DOOM as a DeathMatch game. If you don't enter DEATHMATCH
as a command line parameter, DOOM will default to Cooperative mode.

-SKILL sets the skill level (1-5) you wish to play.
-skill <# of skill level>

-EPISODE sets the episode (1-3) you wish to play. The default episode is
Episode One, Knee-Deep in the Dead.
-episode <# of the episode>

-CONFIG allows you to use your configuration file from any directory you
-config <pathname> ex. -config f:\doom\data\myconfig.cfg

-NOMONSTERS allows you to start playing with NO MONSTERS running around!
This is great for DeathMatch where, really, the monsters just get in the

-RESPAWN tells DOOM that, yes, you are a badass, and yes, you want all the
monsters to respawn 8 seconds after you kill them. The NIGHTMARE skill
level already does this. Note that using -respawn and -nomonsters at the
same time is a dumb thing to do.

-ALTDEATH uses DeathMatch v2.0 mode.

-FAST uses fast monsters, as in Nightmare mode

-MAXDEMO determines the maximum size of a recorded demo
-maxdemo <size in K>

-TURBO increases the speed of the marine (this is considered cheating in
single player mode and is meant for DeathMatch only)
-turbo <speed increase 1-255>

SP Commands
-skill #
-episode #
-loadgame #
-config filename
-file filename
-warp # #
-record filename
-playdemo filename

Get Hank Leukart's Doom FAQ here, and read section 9-2.

It also has tons of other information in it as well. A very awesome FAQ. Cheers Hank.
