You need to add Network=1 to the [Options] section of the C:\msdos.sys file, and
save the file when exiting. To edit the msdos.sys file, you must first remove the
Hidden and System attributes, from a DOS box, then edit in Notepad, save and exit,
then reset the Hidden and System attributes.
To change the attributes, in DOS box type this, and press Enter:
attrib -r -s C:\msdos.sys
To add the attributes back after editing, at the DOS prompt, type this and press
attrib +r +s C:\msdos.sys
BE SURE there are no more options listed at the end of the msdos.sys file, past
where the rows of xxx's are. It's OK to have some there, but look there first, so
you don't add a Network=1 setting separate from one that says Network=0, at the end
of the file, invalidating both. If the Network setting is there, just change it
from 1 to 0, and save the file.
Your msdos.sys file would look something like this:
;The following lines are required for compatibility with other programs.
;Do not remove them (MSDOS.SYS needs to be >1024 bytes).
