What would I need to do in order to have a computer with a dos formated (or win98 formated HD) access a tcp ip network (I have all the drivers for the network card).  
My problem is, that in order for me to be able to install the software I want on the machine, I need to access a network drive.

If you are talking NT, then you will need to create a network client install diskette.
this is available under the Admin tools, or from the NT server cd.
If you do not have a supported NIC, you will need manual changes.
Thre is also a source of Network bootable diskettes on the Net.
I'll pull the URL and get back to you.
