Need help creating Norton Ghost Boot Disks, (I suppose this was actually just a DOS boot disk with network drivers loaded)? I know I did when making one for a Panasonic Tough Book, so I figured I would pass along what I know.

First: Find out exactly what kind of network card you have.  Go to the manufacturer's website and download the NDIS2 driver.  You will need 4 files, stuff like drivername.dos, protocol.ini, and oemsetup.ini

Second: Format the floppy as a Windows 98 Boot Disk (you can download from http://bootdisk.com/ )

Third: Gut the win98 boot floppy of unnecessary files, and copy over the nic drivers into a folder named NET then a subfolder named 50.

Forth: Modify thusly:

Autoexec.bat:
prompt $p$g
\net\netbind.com

Config.sys:
[menu]
menucolor=7,0
menuitem=50
menudefault=50, 9

[50]
DEVICE=A:\net\50\protman.dos /I:A:\net\50
DEVICE=A:\net\50\dis_pkt.dos
DEVICE=\net\50\yuknd.dos

net\50\oemsetup.ini:
;
; OEMSETUP.INF for the yuknd.dos v8.14.1.3 NDIS2 driver supporting the
; Marvell(R) Yukon(R) Ethernet Controller.

[pktdrv]
drivername=PKTDRV$

Sorry, this is really quick and dirty, but this was how to get it to work with the Yukon family of drivers from Marvell.
