A DHCP client is included with the Microsoft Network Client v3.0 for MS-DOS. If you need DHCP support for a DOS-based workstation, this is what you will need to make it happen.

Install the Microsoft Network Client v3.0 for MS-DOS, which can be found on the Windows NT Server Installation CD.

To retrieve the Microsoft Network Client v3.0 for MS-DOS from the Windows NT Server CD, go to the Clients\MSCLIENT directory. There you will find two subdirectories, Disks and Netsetup. The Disks directory is for making diskettes while the Netsetup directory is for network installations. It takes exactly two diskettes to make the installation disk set.

To install the Microsoft Network Client v3.0 for MS-DOS, follow these steps:

  1. Change to the directory containing the installation files. Type SETUP. A welcome screen is displayed (see Figure 6.18). Press Enter to set up the Network Client.
