Win 98 and a dos based program that requires network drive

  1. Hi all,
    Hopefully someone can assist with my predicament!!

    I have a DOS based application running on both win95 and 98 that I need to
    see a networked drive to save files to when it is running in DOS mode.

    I have tried putting the following into the advanced autoexec script of the
    progam icon :-

    net start
    net logon \domain\bob password /YES
    net use w: \\servername\sharename

    After running the net start, it returns "the commands completed
    unfortunately, I get the following after it runs the net logon and net use
    Error 7361: IPX or NETBIOS must be running in order to load the network

    I have installed NETBEUI and made it the default protocal, and the NetBIOS
    tab on TCP/IP properties has a tick in the "I want to enable NetBIOS over
    TCP/IP" - although it's greyed out - but I still get the above errors

    What am i missing????????

    Anyone know how to map drives in autoexec as the machine boots up - all help
    appreciated in advance
