Networking when booting to DOS

Posted on 2004-11-09

I need some help booting a computer (that normally boots to WIN 98) to DOS and allowing other users to change files on that computer while it is running a program that must boot in DOS. Currently I am messing around with net start and net init commands.

Some examples of simple autoexec command and config files that would do this would be most helpful

We have a NT domain.

    Depends on your network card, but Windows NT server can create DOS Network clients that boot off a floppy.  See:
