I am trying to setup a boot disk to use to run Ghost but every time I get to net start the batch file crashes out.

This is what the batch file looks like:-

path=a:\net
a:\net\net initialize
a:\net\netbind.com
a:\net\umb.com
a:\net\tcptsr.exe
a:\net\tinyrfc.exe
a:\net\nmtsr.exe
a:\net\emsbfr.exe
a:\net\net start
net use z: \\amur\it\images

config.sys looks like this:-

files=30
device=a:\net\ifshlp.sys
lastdrive=z
DEVICE=A:\NET\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=A:\NET\EMM386.EXE NOEMS
DOS=HIGH,UMB

protocol.ini looks like this:-


[network.setup]
version=0x3110
netcard=ms$elnk,1,MS$ELNK,1
transport=tcpip,TCPIP
lana0=ms$elnk,1,tcpip

[ms$elnk]
drivername=e100b$
; INTERRUPT=9
; IOADDRESS=0x300
; DMACHANNEL=none
; DMAMODE=burst
; MAXTRANSMITS=12
; MAXREQUESTS=8

[protman]
drivername=PROTMAN$
PRIORITY=MS$NDISHLP

[tcpip]
NBSessions=6
DefaultGateway0="10.205.40.200"
SubNetMask0="255.255.0.0"
IPAddress0="10.205.40.2"
DisableDHCP=1
DriverName=TCPIP$
BINDINGS=ms$elnk
LANABASE=0

This is getting more stupid by the second. I managed to fix the problem I was having (note to self, look at the autoexec.bat file on the A:\ drive not the copy on the c:\ drive with didn't have tinyfrc rem'd out!). Now I am having a different problem.

NET USE f: \\amur\it\images

this line doesn't work! I can see nothing wrong with it but get an incorrect syntax error. When I tried to do NET USE /? | MORE to double check I was told that was incorrect syntax as well, even though the error gave me that suggestion in the first place! Is this a keyboard language problem or what?

HELP!!!!

The Net Use command looks right. Did you verify that you have access to this share without entering a username and password.

phil.evelyn,

I had this same problem once, and I was lead down the wrong troubleshooting path. Because of the "syntax" error, I assumed rights could not be at fault. It turned out that the issue was with the share permission - exactly as cdupuis described. I had created my share on a 2003 Server, which is not Everyone/full by default as it is on Windows 2000.

Technically it is a syntax error as the user/pass are never passed so when the share asks for the user/pass the command passes the map drive command, therefore the syntax is incorrect.

Try going to the top share level \\amur\it. Then have your ghost command run from f:\images\ghost.exe. I know 98 and 95 could not map a drive to a folder inside a share. That was only introduced in 2000 or XP.

Correct you can't map one folder deeper in DOS.
