A note about computer names in Microsoft networks There cannot be more than one computer with a particular name on the network at any time, even during installation. Consequently to deploy Windows 9x on multiple computers, you must manually change the value of the computer name. Different configuration managers exist to overcome this hurdle in enterprise OS deployments. For more information on deploying Windows 98/ME in an enterprise network, consult the Windows 98/ME 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 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 98 can occur, a directory needs to be prepared. 1. Copy the contents of the Windows ME setup folder from the Windows CD to Z:\PUSH. This is the folder on the CD that contains the WIN_xx.CAB files. On most Windows Millennium release CDs this is the \WIN9X folder on the CD. Use Explorer, Winfile or XCOPY in order to maintain the same directory structure as on the CD. 2. Copy the PRO/100 Family network drivers into the Z:\PUSH directory that now contains the .CAB files. The following files from the Driver media should be in the directory when done. net82557.inf net82557.din net8255a.inf e100bnt5.sys e100bnt.sys e100b.sys e100b.cat e100ba.cat 8255xndi.dll 8255xDel.exe e100bodi.com wol558.vxd 3. Copy the CUSTOM.INF and MSBATCH.INF files from the directory containing these instructions into the Z:\PUSH directory. 4. Review the copy of MSBATCH.INF within the Z:\PUSH directory. Make any changes needed to customize the install. 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 - Use the Boot Strap Agent and an installed PXE Server. See the Boot Agent Users Guide for deployment suggestions and strategies for each OS. 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 the following setup command line. Note: Do not include the argument "/ID" if there is any doubt that there is sufficient free hard disk space. SETUP /IS /ID /IM /IE /IW /IV - "/IV" turns off billboards and speeds up the setup. - "/ID" turns off free diskspace check IV.
