HOW to create a Linux driver disk in Windows DOS?

How to create a NIC card driver disk using DOS?

I am trying to install Redhat 9 through FTP (No CD-ROM). During the installation, it asks for a DRIVER DISK. I have made one from the drvnet.img, but my NIC card is not in the list (D-LINK DFE-380TX).

I have tried to download a driver (.o file) from D-LINK. It didn't work. What can I do? How can I create a driver disk from a ".o" file in DOS?

I currently have a Windows 2000 PC available only .

don't know much about it, but this may help:

if not, run a search on this board for "dlink nic" - there are quite a few threads on it.
