  1. Hey i was wondering if someone could remind me how to make the 4 boot disk for NT 4.0. I have done it before but only once, and i cant remember how to do it. I am trying to load NT on an older machine and (was currently running 98). i cant seem to find anything useful on the net. all i get are site that want to make just a single bootable disk. ok thanks for the input

    You can make a set of these floppies by inserting the NT CD into your CD-ROM drive, booting to the DOS prompt and:

    D:\

    cd i386

    winnt /OX

    Where D: is your CD-ROM drive.

    Must have slipped my mind:
    use d:\i386\winnt /ox from DOS and
    d:\i386\winnt32 /ox from WINDOWS
