How to Create a network bootdisk

By jatkinso ·
The boot disk I have created will boot the computer, but will not initialize the Breezenet PCMCIA card. I get the error card initialization failed. My question is how do I correctly create this boot disk?

http://www.bootdisk.com has some samples on creating similar disks. You may be able to download one of these, and replace with your card's drivers.

Comment: No website and/or answer is going to be as specific as using a Breeze net PCMCIA card in an Acer laptop. Essentially, the disk should have the right drivers in the order specified in any of these disks, specially the ones pertaining to laptops.

Make sure that you have the .com driver and have a reference in it in both the net.bat and the net.cfg files. Also when I was creating a boot disk for the intel pro 10/100 cards I had to find vlm version 1.12 instead of 1.11 That was a pain to do. All of my 3com cards boot fine off of the vlm version 1.11 but the intel ones won't. Check it out.
