Do you pre-install Windows via a network adaptor (bootable dos disk/cd)? This little program will detect your network
hardware, reconfigure Windows Networking to support that card, and also generate a random machine
name. Supports PCI and many ISA network cards.
Technically, this software is obsolete now - you should be using Windows PE, but it's still here.

Supported ISA NIC Cards:
- DE220 at 200h ... 360h
- GE2000 at 200h ... 360h
- Intel Etherexpress TP16 at 300h ... 370h
- Novell NE2000 or compatible at 300h
- SMC8000 or compatible at 200h .. 3F0h
- 3COM or compatible
Most PCI network cards are supported, however many manufacturers of newer cards do not
supply NDIS2 drivers for their products.
Installation Instructions: (Assuming you want a bootable floppy)
This one’s a little complicated. Copy the SETNET.EXE and SETNET.INI
files you have downloaded to the root directory of a bootable floppy.
Then you need some DOS 6.xx network files (Win9x ones
look at the registry, which is not needed). Create a directory called
A:\NET, and place the following files in it:
Volume in drive A is OPK_BOOT
Directory of A:\NET
. <DIR> 19/04/99 16:56 .
.. <DIR> 19/04/99 16:56 ..
ifshlp sys 4,644 26/05/95 22:57 IFSHLP.SYS

pcind dos 14,655 02/12/95 0:46 PCIND.DOS
The last three are optional. Include the *.DOS files for any network
card that will be used by SETNET
Place the line “DEVICE=A:\NET\IFSHLP.SYS” in your
CONFIG.SYS file; modify SYSTEM.INI to suit your network — see the above
example; make sure there’s a section in the PROTOCOL.INI file for each
of your ISA network cards describing I/O address, IRQ and anything else
that’s needed. The name of the section must match that in the
SETNET.INI file — but more about that later.
Place a “CALL A:\STARTNET.BAT” in your AUTOEXEC.BAT, then create an
A:\STARTNET.BAT batch file containing the commands to establish a
setnet A:\NET /C
a:\net\net start workstation
a:\net\net use Z: \\SERVER\C
Change the last line to whatever
you want. The “A:\NET” in the SETNET line refers to the location of
the SYSTEM.INI and PROTOCOL.INI files; the /C generates a random
