NetBEUI and Windows 2003 server

Using NetBeui I was sharing files between Windows 2000 server and a DOS box. I upgraded to Windows 2003 and lost the NetBeui protocol. Any sugestions on how to network the DOS and 2003 server?

Hi gary,

I ran onto the same problem. Even though Microsoft say it dosen't support Netbeui under 2003 anymore, you can still install it with a Windows XP media. Get your Windows XP CD, then go to your network connections, properties on the one you need the protocol on, and then click on install.

You'll then need to go to cdrom:\valueadd\mfst\net\netbeui ... install this driver (.inf) and you're done (requires reboot).

Have fun,
