I have a problem, when I do Server Based Setup
Windows 98 I cannot reboot workstation.
I have an error message about missing snapshot.vxd, but I didn't find it in a Windows 98 CD, I tried another CD but no use. What the matter is there any substitute for snapshot.vxd in Win 98 or what and where can I get this file if neccesary. Thanks in advance.

Mans, it sounds like you're trying to use your old Win95 batch files to setup Windows 98 from the server. Snapshot.vxd is a Windows 95 VXD file and no longer applies to Win98. Use Batch98 and the INF file generator to handle these operations. Then you can use a Novell, Unix or WinNT server for the setup from the share you create.

By the way, when you create the setup batch file, use reboot.com. It can be found on the install cd and if you've made a win98 setup floppy, it's on there as well.
