DOS Boot DIsk Client to NT via TCP/IP

I am trying to set up a DOS boot disk which will allow us to log on to an NT domain via TCP/IP over a router.

- Has anyone done this?
- What client should I use - Lanman 2.2c or MS Network Client for DOS 3.0?
LM2.2c seems smaller but MS Knowledge base articlw Q142367 suggests there's a problem getting over a router.

Also, can NIC drivers be loaded AFTER boot-up (i.e not from config.sys)? If so, how? We need to develop a NIC autodetect process for the cards we support.

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.

Have you looked at the Workstation Manager on the NT server.  I am not in front of my server right now but it is on the START buttion, Programs, Administrator Tools (Common).  I remember playing around with that one day and saw that you can create install disks to use on DOS (FAT) based work stations.
