Disclaimer:The process described herein was developed from BETA Windows 98
           software and is subject to change with future releases of that
           Operating System.

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 can not use these files by themselves
	to deploy Windows98 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 98 in an enterprise network consult the 
	Windows 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 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 Win98 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.DL_              -->     Z:\PUSH\8255xNDI.DL_
          A:\8255xDEL.EXE              -->     Z:\PUSH\8255xDEL.EXE
          A:\WIN98\PUSH\NET82557.INF   -->     Z:\PUSH\NET82557.INF
          A:\WIN98\PUSH\CUSTOM.INF     -->     Z:\PUSH\CUSTOM.INF
          A:\WIN98\PUSH\MSBATCH.INF    -->     Z:\PUSH\MSBATCH.INF
          A:\WIN98\WOL558.VX_          -->     Z:\PUSH\WOL558.VX_
          A:\DOS\E100B.DOS             -->     Z:\PUSH\E100B.DOS
          A:\DOS\E100BODI.COM          -->     Z:\PUSH\E100BODI.COM
          A:\NT\E100B.SY_              -->     Z:\PUSH\E100B.SY_
          A:\NT\E100BNT.SY_            -->     Z:\PUSH\E100BNT.SY_  
          A:\NT\E100BNT5.SY_           -->     Z:\PUSH\E100BNT5.SY_  
          A:\NT\PROSETP.CP_            -->     Z:\PUSH\PROSETP.CP_
          A:\NT\PROMON.EX_             -->     Z:\PUSH\PROMON.EX_ 
          A:\NT\PROSETP.HL_            -->     Z:\PUSH\PROSETP.HL_  
          A:\NT\PROSETP.CNT            -->     Z:\PUSH\PROSETP.CNT
          A:\WIN95\PROKDDP.VX_         -->     Z:\PUSH\PROKDDP.VX_
          A:\WIN95\PRODD.VX_           -->     Z:\PUSH\PRODD.VX_ 

	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 98 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 the following setup command line however
	you may be deploying Windows 98:

		SETUP /IS /IM /IE /IW

IV. Where to get help

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

	Microsoft's support web site is also a great place to look:

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
