You'll find the hotfixes listed in subdirectories under the WINNT directory in Win2K, or the Windows directory in Win9x and WinXP. They'll look like this:
Just burn a copy of the folders to a CD. The next time you need to do a clean install of the operating system, open the folders, one at a time, and run the hotfix.exe located inside.
You may need to access your Folder Options from the toolbar in Windows Explorer, and choose to "Show all hidden files and folders" either from the View or the Tools menu (depends on your OS) in order to "see" the folders.
Certainly useful information, mate. Thanks for replying.
But can you answer me this?
At home I need to do a clean install of WIN98SE, but using a standard dial up line means long downloads to get the updated window files I need. In work I use an NT box with a 1.5 meg pipe, and I was hoping to grab all necessary MS updates in work, burn them onto a CD and use this at home to install the updates.
What I actually need to know is how to grab the updates from MS's site and save them as files on my HD for burning.
Hope you can help.
Oh, I'm sorry. Did I accidentally blow your head off.......again?
