On some of those old systems you had to use a floppy disk to do the initial boot then when it comes to the bot up where it has the A:\ prompt you type in E:\ enter
and then type in setup

And I am trying to set up dhcp on the computer so it cant connect to the internet. first off it doesnt have ie or anything so I am trying to download netscape on it now... but its not connecting to the internet to get the files for the download.

Its connection is good. I have the tcp/ip set up and the ethernet card in and I am getting green lights yet it will not connect to the internet

I dont have the My Network neighborhood on the desktop either. How do I get that. If I go tot he control panel one all it has is the set up of network cards etc.

Geez windows 95 is old... :oops:

Because you have to load drivers for the CD rom,

When you dont boot in Windows it dosent load the drivers to run the cd rom.

You hvae to create a boot disk that contains a cd driver.

I have one brent ill send it to u hopefully it will work.

About D and E

all that is, is the drive.

THere can be a D: dirve in dos, or E: or ect..
Its whatever u set up your drives at.

Actually with the early bios chips like on the pentium 166 to 233 M/B they require you to prompt to E drive I know it is crazy but it is true. I doa fairly good sideline business business in fixing 166 to 233 computers who are to cheap to buy a new computer because they spent 3000 on there dinosaur when it was new !!!!
