Networking from DOS

Is there a way to boot in DOS mode? I am running the stock microsoft networking with file & printer sharing but have a need to access the network from a DOS boot from time to time.

Download the Netbeui and TCP/IP stack from Microsoft's FTP site.  Here's the URL: ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/clients/msclient/
You've got win95 or win98 installed ? Just boot in DOS-mode, type at the c:prompt "net start" and "net workstation". Now you can view all shared resources with net view.'That's all.

the NET program only runs under windows. I can't be in DOS MODE, I need to boot to command line only. Just like sticking in a boot disk.
