    I'm setting up a wireless network for the first time and have run into a
    problem. I just got a new Dell laptop that unfortunatley doesn't have a
    floppy drive. It also had Windows XP preloaded. When I get to the part of
    the Network Setup Wizard where it says that to set up other computers with
    Windows 98 SE on them, I have to either create a Wizard Disk or insert a
    Windows XP disk in order to do this, I'm screwed!!! Is there any way to
    create this Wizard Disk and burn to a CD, or could someone e-mail the files
    from a Wizard Disk they've created so that I can run this on my Windows 98
    machine so I can share files and printers? I have the network set up and can
    access the internet on the laptop, I just can't get to any of the files on
    the old machine. HELP!! E-mail is . THANKS!!!

    Bit confused about which machine is which from your post, but could you not
    just insert a USB flash disk?

    hey Rob,

    You would think it would be that simple, but unfortunately, it will only
    allow you to create the Wizard Disk onto a floppy. It won't recognize my
    flash drive or my CD-RW drive for this purpose. Thanks for trying!

    Have you tried just skipping that step? I've got a home network with 3
    wireless machines (1 is W98) and did not bother with the wizard disk.
