I have a Dell Inspiron 3200 with WIN98SE installed. I have just installed the OS and several applications and have a good starting point. I want to image the hard drive using GHOST 5.1d. I powered down the system, installed a XIRCOM CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 (CE3B-100BTX), connected the dongle and network patch cord and booted the system with a DOS boot disk with the network drivers and the CE3ODI driver. When the boot process tries to load the driver, I get a message that states that no PC cards were found.
I called Dell for help with this but I was told that I would not be able to boot and connect to the network through DOS.
I don't believe that is true because I do it with Compaq laptops all the time.
I guess I need something like card and socket services, but where do I get them? Shouldn't the BIOS be able to detect the PCMCIA cards installed?
