    I use to remember the syntax for connecting and mapping a drive over the network when one machine was in DOS and the other has logged into Windows. Can anyone be kind enough to PM these in detail to me?

    I am actually trying to ghost my XP machine (NTFS) onto my Win98 mahince (Fat32). DOS does not recognize NTFS.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    in MS DOS you start with the "net" command; the switches are displayed with that.

    If I remember right. I still carry a LAN client setup disk from MS in my bag of tricks, just in case.

    If you are using the "Ghost" program you'd be wanting to ghost the XP machine right over whatever is on the recipient hard drive. You'd have both drives in one machine as primary and secondary masters.

    Hey Herb,

    Thanks for the reply. You are right. I used to Ghost win98 machines all the time over the network and burn the files to CD-R. I am trying to do this with Xp and it is a little more than I can handle... at the moment. TO recap>

    1. Boot win98 machine into DOS
    2. Boot WinXp machine in windows
    3. Use dos syntax to connect and map WinXP C drive to win98 machine
    4. Ghost Winxp Machine to win98
    5. Burn file to DVD-R

    I need to Ghost it over a network becasue Ghost in DOS mode does not recognize NTFS. I don't have a floppy drive on the XP machine but I can boot into ODS using my old Win98 CD.

    I rememebr using some Net use commands but can't find any detail instructions on how to do this anymore.

    Any help (especially detail syntax) would be greatly appreciated!

    Update: I am unable to connect to the WinXP machine from the Win98 machine when in DOS. I don't think my idea will work since DOS cannot recognize NTFS in the XP machine. Refreshed my memory with net use, net view etc... hehe cool but unsuccessful.
