    Yes I can add drivers. Still got 150K+ free :)

    You need to send me the NDIS2 Read Mode DOS network card driver, for the MS Client. The driver itself is normally just 1 file, which has a .DOS extension. I also need a file called protocol.ini which contains the config settings. These two files are normally in the NDIS2 or DOS folders on the network card driver disk etc.

    ZIP then email them to me at: braddriver @ engineer . com

    Thats an NDIS4 driver, the MS client uses NDIS2. :(

    If you can get NDIS2 *.DOS driver file, then I can add it then.

    Had a problem useing a D-Link 530 (Can't locate card when trying to load drivers). I noticed you have "(uses a "Digital" Chip)". Are there different versions of this card? The driver you have for it is DLKFET but the driver that I got with the card is DLKRTS. I don't really need it but thought I'd try it out and let you know how it went.

    Ah thanks you letting me know about this.

    I too had this problem, though since the card was at work (and I'm on holidays) I haven't been able to look in to it. I'd say I must have the wrong driver, I had a stack of D-LINK / NIC driver disks at work when i first started working on the disk, and I'm guessing that I've got it mixed up. :D

    Downloading a new driver for it now.

    Oh and....Appears there are two versions of the 530, a digital version and a "dlink?" version. The Digital driver on the disk should work for the digital version.

    EDIT: ahh what! Theres DE530TX and DFE530CT cards :)

    I'm not sure how easy it is to get DOS to support USB. I don't think it's possible?? Tell me if you get it working.

    Try using the D-LINK 500 driver and see if that works. :)

    If that doesn't work, can you email me the DLKRTS driver to braddriver @ engineer . com

    yep

    figured that out last night when i was thinking DOS and USB :(

    if only DOS had USB support, this would be the ultimate tool to copy setup files off another computer in a hurry, without having to install a NIC

    man i hate comps with one partition :(

    Wow, this is just what I have been looking for! I wish I could download it though.... I just get the "Page Cannot be Found" bit when I try to download from the link on the page.
    This sounds like a dream come true, I would really like to try it!

    No go with the 500, can't find the board in system. I had a go at adding the DLKRTS myself and it seems to boot fine until it tries to bind. Just throws an error 33- Unable to bind. At least the drivers for the card loaded okay. I'll send ya the DLKRTS files.

    BTW My card is a DFE-530TX+

    Did you add the protocol.ini file too?

    I will add the driver for the next release, which will be soon :)

    It's good to hear that it's been working for most people :)

    What cards have people been using?

    D-Link 530 appears to be the only one which doesn't work atm. NormM has sent me a different driver for this card, so hopefully I'll get it working soon. I have a 30 PC computer lab full of these, so I really wanna get this one working :p

    I'm currently working on some new features:
    * Auto-detection of the PCI NIC
    * Menu Timeout -- a config summary is shown, and if no key is pressed the script will continue with the autodetected NIC / current settings
    * Password written to disk is encrypted.

    Because the protocol.ini file that comes with the card basically only has one line... driver=dlkrts$ (or something) so I edited the dlkfet.ini (just changed the driver name??).
