I. A note about computer names in Microsoft networks

      It is important to not have two computers with the same network 
      name on the network at the same time, or being installed at the
      same time.  Consequently you cannot use these files by themselves
      to deploy Windows 95/98 on multiple computers, without manually 
      changing the computer name value.

      Different configuration managers exist to overcome this hurdle in
      enterprise OS deployments.  For more information on deploying
      Windows 95/98 in an enterprise network, consult the Windows 95/98
      resource kit


II. Setting up an Install Directory on the file server
	
Note:  The network share Z:\PUSH is used here as an example path to the
       distribution folder.  The distribution folder is where the setup
       files for Windows 95/98 reside.  During the first step of the
       install, the client will connect to the distribution folder with
       IPX or TCP/IP.

Before an unattended server based setup of Windows 95/98 can occur 
a directory needs to be prepared.

       1.  Copy the Win9x setup folder from the CD to Z:\PUSH.  Use 
           Explorer, Winfile or XCOPY in order to maintain the same 
           directory structure as on the CD.

       2.  From the Configuration and Drivers Diskette provided with the
           adapter, copy the following files and directories into
           Z:\PUSH:

           A:\8255xNDI.DLL              -->     Z:\PUSH\8255xNDI.DLL
           A:\8255xDEL.EXE              -->     Z:\PUSH\8255xDEL.EXE
           A:\E100B.CAT                 -->     Z:\PUSH\E100B.CAT
           A:\E100B.DOS                 -->     Z:\PUSH\E100B.DOS
           A:\E100B.SYS                 -->     Z:\PUSH\E100B.SYS
           A:\E100BNT.SYS               -->     Z:\PUSH\E100BNT.SYS 
           A:\E100BNT5.SYS              -->     Z:\PUSH\E100BNT5.SYS 
           A:\E100BODI.COM              -->     Z:\PUSH\E100BODI.COM
           A:\NET82557.INF              -->     Z:\PUSH\NET82557.INF
           A:\PRODD.VXD                 -->     Z:\PUSH\PRODD.VXD
           A:\PROKDDP.VXD               -->     Z:\PUSH\PROKDDP.VXD
           A:\PROMON.EXE                -->     Z:\PUSH\PROMON.EXE
           A:\PROSETP.CNT               -->     Z:\PUSH\PROSETP.CNT
           A:\PROSETP.CPL               -->     Z:\PUSH\PROSETP.CPL
           A:\PROSETP.HLP               -->     Z:\PUSH\PROSETP.HLP 
           A:\WOL558.VXD                -->     Z:\PUSH\WOL558.VXD

           A:\WIN9X\PUSH\CUSTOM.INF     -->     Z:\PUSH\CUSTOM.INF
           A:\WIN9X\PUSH\MSBATCH.INF    -->     Z:\PUSH\MSBATCH.INF

       3.  Review the copy of MSBATCH.INF within the Z:\PUSH directory,
           make any changes needed to customize the install for your
           network.

III. Deployment Methods

There are many ways to perform an unattended installation or upgrade
including but not limited to:

  - Setting up a login script that executes a setup statement when
    each user logs in

  - Inserting an object in an email message that runs setup when the 
    user clicks it

  - Using Microsoft SMS server to run Windows 9x Setup

  - Inserting a floppy that shares a drive on the network and runs
    setup from the shared drive

  - Copying the files to a local drive and then running an unattended
    setup from there

In the end each Network Administrator will find the easiest way
to accomplish this goal for his or her own network.

To avoid possible areas where an unattended installation might be 
halted we recommend you use one of the following setup command lines
for Windows 95 or Windows 98, respectively:

     Windows 95:
     SETUP /IS /IW /IM

     Windows 98:
     SETUP /IS /IM /IE /IW


IV. Where to get help

The Windows 95 and Windows 98 Resource kit contains detailed 
information on unattended setups and deploying Windows 95/98 in an 
enterprise environment.
