What might be the cause of the above error? I'm using the boot CD on an eMachines computer.

find the FreeDOS image on the ISO

UBCD 5.0b5
Code:
/ubcd/images/fdubcd.igz

open the image (decompress with Gzip) and inject the required driver(s) for your desired NIC into the following folder (use WinImage)...
Code:
/lib/ndis

drivers can be found here...

remaster the ISO with the newly created image.
Boot into FreeDOS, then type "msnet" to begin

I'm a beginner. I don't know how to find the FreeDOS image on the ISO. When I look on my current disc (which was generated by a friend), I see an IMAGES directory, but there is no fdubcd.igz in it.

I have downloaded a fresh copy of the ubcd411.iso file to my computer. How do I proceed?

No problem. You'll need to download the latest version of FreeDOS for UBCD...
viewtopic.php?t=1422

Once downloaded, unzip the file. Rename the image "dosubcd.igz" to "dosubcd.img.gz" (you should now be able to open the archived image using Gzip or Winzip).

There should be a file within the archive containing a *.img suffix. Use WinImage (google it) to open the disk image.

Search for the directory...
Code:
/lib/ndis


This is where you'll need to place (drag and drop) your network driver (see the link I provided with which to download the correct driver for your NIC). Once done, save the image and rename it to "dosubcd.igz" (I'm skipping the compression step for now).

Using ISO software (Nero, WinISO, MagicISO etc), insert the newly created disk image into your UBCD ISO...
Code:
/images/dosubcd.igz


Burn the ISO (or test it using a virtual machine such as Virtual PC or VMWare). Once booted, select the following from the CD menu...
Quote:
DOS/Linux boot disks -> Dos boot disk -> FreeDOS bootdisk 3.40


Once loaded, exit to the command prompt and type "msnet" to begin.
