Sure this question has been asked a thousand times, but I've yet to find a concrete solution.

I have a laptop that I need to restore an image to.  There is no FDD.  I just want to get into the Ghostcast area just as I would have a floppy drive.

Is there a way to easily create a CD that would load ghost.exe and allow me to use Ghostcast?

I've researched both paths, and neither have worked.... While I was able to use jvuz's suggestion; Ghost will not run properly (with network connectivity)... It fails to load protman.

Heh... I'm saying I can't even find the syntax for use...

The "BD355.EXE" extracts these files:

- BD355.DRJ
- FLOPMAKE.EXE
- MAKEDISK.BAT
- README.TXT

The readme has nothing but changelog info...

Ok, well I got so far as this:

The CD boots fine, but I get this message after the NIC find tool runs:

One network adapter found.  Bus 2 Device 0

14E4165D Ethernet
Broadcom/Dell Unknown Device

Directory already exists
No network adapter found, or network adapter not supported
NICNUM: 14E4165D
