Win98 command

by TheChas In reply to Win98 command

Check out this Tech Republic article;

Use command-line switches to install Windows 9x like a pro

Feb 12, 2001

Or, this MS article;
Microsoft documents most of the SETUP command line switches in their Knowledge Base article Q186111
Just enter the Q number in the search box.

Also, you can click on cancel when Windows goes to write the files to the floppy.

There are also web sites that document the "secret" switches. From the TR article;

Secret switches
Then, there are the switches that Microsoft doesn't talk much about. These include the /iw switch that lets you bypass the End User License Agreement screen and the /ip switch that allows you to ignore Plug and Play. You'll find these and other useful tricks on the Windows Setup area of Bob Cerelli's Windows Page (www.onecomputerguy.com). Microsoft's Knowledge Base is another great reference. In fact, the /iw switch is described in report Q158452?How to Configure Windows 95 Remoteboot on Windows NT 4.0.
