How do I create a net boot disk in W98?

By jivey ·
I need to make a boot disk for win 98 that allows me to use an IBM PCMCIA token ring (uuuuggghhhh, I know...) network adapter card and I'm not having much luck... Could someone give me some advice or point me to somewhere where I might find some help?

thanks!

Depending on what you intend to do once booted (you can't boot win98 in a normal manner from diskette). If you are troubleshooting or repairing a failed system, you can create a DOS boot disk with LANMAN (Pre-NT Microsoft Networking) support using your IBM PCMCIA token ring NIC (you'll need DOS drivers for this) from a Windows NT Server (or NT Server CD-ROM).

On the server, point to Start->Programs->Administrative Tools(Common)->Network Client Administrator

On the CD, run \CLIENTS\MSCLIENT\NETSETUP.

Once you can boot DOS from diskette and get to the network, you might be able (if there's enough room and you know how to determine dependencies) to get the Win98 boot diskette to load the DOS network client in the layer underlying the OS.

Good fortune be with you.
