CST 8174 Lab# 6 Objectives To obtain the windows 98 installation files over a network Install Windows 98 to the HDD Install and configure 100 MB NIC under Windows 98 Install and configure a Sound Card under Windows 98 Equipment: Toolkit & anti-static wrist strap Netware boot disk (from lab 6) 3COM series NIC SoundBlaster PCI 128 sound card Blank diskette Procedure : N.B. : Follow these procedures carefully. At all times, if you are unsure or are having problems, consult your lab teacher to insure that you are not inadvertently damaging the equipment. Connect to internal server – download Win’98 installation files First, verify the size of your HDD. It must be at LEAST 200 Megabytes to complete this lab. If your HDD is less than 200M, Inform your lab instructor. Second verify that you have at least 64 MB of RAM in your . , computer If you have less than 64 MB of RAM inform your lab . instructor Third verify that you have NIC card in the computer, if not get a 10/100 NIC from the lab instructor. This NIC card in the computer is a PCI card. Take note of how close the gold fingers on the edge of the card are. For this reason, it’s extremely important that the card be properly seated in the PCI slot. If it’s not completely and properly seated, it can easily short out the PCI slot, doing damage to both the NIC, and the PC. Use the boot disk you created in the last lab to connect to the server in T112C. Verify that the D:\WIN98SE drive contains the windows 98 CAB files by typing the following: cd D:\WIN98SE

If drive D:\WIN98 does not contain the WIN98 CAB files, check the information displayed when you login to the server. One network drive will be identified as being used for Windows 98. Use that drive letter in all future steps, when accessing or copying files from the network to your hard drive After confirming the D:\WIN98SE drive contains the WIN98 cabs, copy them to your HDD by typing the following: md c:\98cabs (creates a directory for the cabs) md c:\poledit cd dos copy /v D:\WIN98SE \*.* c:\98cabs (copies all files on the D:\WIN98SE drive to the dir C:\98cabs) copy /v D:\win98se\poledit\*.* c:\poledit\*.* The /v switch verifies the accuracy of each copied file. It takes longer, but in this case the extra time is worth it. If you choose to not verify files as they’re copied, you run the risk of loading corrupted CAB files onto your hard drive. If this occurs, you must re-download all files, and restart the installation process Install Windows 98 Change to the directory containing the Win98 cab files. (cd 98cabs).
