I was wondering if there is a way to create a boot disc that loads a bunch of drivers or a specific driver. I already know how to make the windows boot disc part I just cant seem to get it to load a specific driver.

For example if I have a network card that the windows disc doesnt recognize after its done installing windows it will show up in the device mgr saying with an exclamation point that its missing a driver.

I tried copiing the driver files to the i386 folder on the windows disc but it seems to be more then that. its like it loads files from a database or something on the disc.
