How To Configure an MS-DOS PC for the Ne

By tina.m.miller ·
I have a PI desktop with an SMC 8416 network card. This is going to be a dedicated workstation running a DOS application from a network server. I don't want to install windows on it at all. I am sure that there's a way to write a driver batch file to boost it onto the network, but my tech support claims that DOS is so obsolete that nobody there knows how!!!

Thank you, but I wound up at Microsoft's site using an old network client for dos utility and knowledge base articles. The good news? It works!!!
