Windows NT Workstation Customization
To add or remove running programs listed in the start menu, right click on the taskbar, select "properties", then select "Start Menu Programs". The key combination ALT-TAB will allow switching between tasks.
Shortcuts are pointers to programs that may be placed anywhere on the system. Usually shortcuts are placed on the user's desktop which is located in the folder "WINNT40\ Profiles\Username\Desktop".
NT profile settings or customizing for docking a laptop may be set from the control panel from the "System" applet by selecting the "Hardware Profiles" tab.
Making a boot disk
The following procedure outlines how to make a boot disk:
- If necessary establish a connection with the directory that contains the installation files.
- Enter a command line session in the MSDOS prompt.
- Type "winnt /o" at the MS-DOS prompt to create a boot floppy with the files, boot.ini, ntdetect.com, and ntdlr.exe.
- Follow the instructions on the screen.
Another method is to:
- Format the floppy disk.
- Modify the file attributes of boot.ini, ntdetect.com, and ntldr.exe so they are not hidden, system, or read-only files.
- Copy boot.ini, ntdetect.com, and ntldr.exe to the floppy disk.
- Change the file attributes of boot.ini, ntdetect.com, and ntldr.exe back to their original settings.
- If Windows NT resides on a SCSI drive with the SCSI BIOS disabled, copy Ntbootdd.sys to the floppy disk.
- It should now be possible to boot the system using the floppy disk.
