Making Ghost Boot CD with Prodos.exe

Ok, here is my dilemma.  I am trying to make a Ghost Boot Disk with a file that I downloaded from Intel called ProDOS.exe.  It is a NDIS Driver that is supposed to cover a very wide variety of drivers.  I try to make a 3.5" floppy but it tells me that the file is too big.  I have tried copying the files from the 3.5" and editing the .ini and autoexec.bat files and then burned them onto a cd, but I don't have something right.  If I copy it directly it asks me to put in a floppy, so I changed all of the .ini, .sys, and .bat files from a: to c:-  That didn't work, so I take it that I don't have something right in the .ini, .bat, or .sys files.  Anyone know how to edit them for what I want.  Should the drive letter be D?

Autoexec.bat
@ECHO OFF
SET TZ=GHO+06:00
SET PATH=C:\NET\;C:\;%PATH%;
SET TEMP=C:\
SET TCPHELP=C:\NET
SET ETCDIR=C:\NET
REM \MOUSE.COM
C:\NET\NET START
C:\NET\NET.EXE USE G: \\ghost\clients
C:\NET\NET.EXE USE

Config.sys
DEVICEHIGH=C:\HIMEM.SYS
DOS=HIGH,UMB
DEVICEHIGH=C:\NET\PROTMAN.DOS /i:C:\NET
DEVICEHIGH=C:\NET\prodos.exe
DEVICEHIGH=C:\NET\NTSTS.DOS
DEVICEHIGH=C:\NET\DLSHELP.SYS
LASTDRIVE = Z

network.ini
[network]
computername=IBM 1001
lanroot=C:\NET
autostart=netbeui full
username=puter
domain=somewhere.com
lslogon=yes
reconnect=no
passwordcaching=no
timesync=no

The C is not your CD Rom drive letter ? aint it?

If it is then it shouldn't be any problem with it, but you should first check which is your CD Rom drive letter when you boot to Dos screen, check one by one to see ,,

C:
d:
f:
g:

and so on, but if you are intending to copy the content of the command so the autoexec.bat looks into your C drive, then you should copy the content of Net directory to C:\ drive to make sure that it has no problem with reaching the driver content..

I put the Net directory onto the CD and I have mapped it and it still doesn't work.

There are some similarities there, but none that help out my situation.  The one thing I have noticed is that the pro1000 pm (which is what is in the pc) is not on the list of drivers in the prodos.exe.  I need a link to download the drivers.  It is an IBM PC.  The only driver they have on their site is the entire motherboard chipset with the NIC included.

I guess the problem that XP doesn't support the Autoexec.bat, and if you are booting of a floppy then reaching a NTFS.. except if the ghost boot floppy will make you able to reach and access the NTFS system partitions.

What I did was go to www.netbootdisk.com and download a premade disk and changed the login to logon locally to the ghost server.
