To create a network setup floppy disk

If you are running the Network Setup Wizard on Windows XP, you must be logged on as an administrator in order to complete this procedure.

Follow the steps on your screen to configure your home or small office network.


When you come to the page that reads, You're almost done, insert a blank, formatted floppy disk into the drive, and then click Create Disk.


If you have already run the Network Setup Wizard, and did not create the floppy disk, you will need to run it again to create the floppy disk. When you do so, you must enter the same information for your network as you did when you ran the wizard the first time.
