Network boot disk for DOS

We have been trying to get a boot disk going for a few days now so that we can use ghost software. Net card (el90x.dos)initiates but when it gets to : net start, it fails...we modified the system.ini and protocol.ini to reflect the net card(3com el905x) and tcp/ip settings along with domain name. Does anyone have a working boot disk they can email us? If anything can you provide me with your configuration...in any case the email address is compusource@mindspring.com

I have made my own network bootdisk for 3com 905 Etherlink XL cards. It does not include TCP/IP however. Can you still use it ?

If you are trying to use MS Network Client to create this bootdisk, don't go with TCP/IP.  It is a good idea to just go with the NetBEUI protocol if you can.  The reason why your Net Start hangs is that the protocol cannot bind to the card giving a NetBind error.  There was a fix for Token Ring card with the new IBMTOK.DOS file, where as I could not find one with the Etherlink configuration.
Good Luck...

Ps: you don't need a disk from anybody.  Just run your MS Network Client's Setup program and undo the TCP/IP settings.
