Does anyone know how to mount an nfs share in freedos or any other version of dos? I want to be able to mount it as a drive.

Thanks

hmm...not sure about this since the freedos version supplied with ubcd (version 5 at least) only comes loaded with novel netware drivers(?) - you can select them by typing 'menu' at the command prompt and selecting 'novel netware client'.

not sure how you'd go about setting up a share drive using novel. in the meantime you could download Brad's Universal TCP/IP Network Bootdisk and incorporate the disk as a custom image into the ubcd iso (i've currently re-written the script to work within freedos but i need to submit it both to viktor and brad for approval).

is there another network driver that I could add? I know how to add files to the freedos image I just don't know what I would need to put in there.

you need to go here and download the following:

Quote:
msnet.cab (goes in /level0)
msclient.cab (.../lib)
mstcp.cab (.../lib)
msnwlink.cab (.../lib)
whatnic.cab (.../level0)


then download the desired network adapter plug-in(s) and place \lib\ndis.

should work then :)

On the link that you gave me it says that msnet.cab should be placed in level3. I can't seem to find the whatnic.cab file on the link. How can I find out what network plug-ins I need? Also inside of lib there is no ndis folder, the only folders that are there are aspi and odi16.

Thanks for all the help!

stick it in level0. :)

type "menu" to access it or type msnet at the command prompt.

whoops. here you go (not essential but useful in determining what NIC you have.)

simply create one ;)

whatnic.cab should be able to tell you (uses pciscan to relay your NIC information).

when I try to run whatnic it says that its starting but then fails and says bad command or filename - "pciscan". Do you know where I can find pciscan?

thanks as702,
Now when I run whatnic it tells me that the drivers I need are E1000E and E1000 but when I go to the website to find them the link is dead. Do you know where else I can find these drivers?
