In the Release Notes for BackOffice Small Business Server (Readme.wri on Disk 1), step 6 of "Follow these steps to create boot disks" incorrectly states the path to the file Winnt.sif.

Below are the steps as read in the Readme.wri:

  1. Insert Disc 1 into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Open a command box by clicking Programs on the Start menu and clicking Command Prompt.
  3. In Command Prompt, change the drive to your CD-ROM drive letter. If your CD-ROM drive is E:, type E: and press the Enter key.
  4. Type cd i386.
  5. Type winnt32 /ox.
  6. After the third boot floppy disk is created, copy Winnt.sif from d:\i386\support directory (replace d: with the correct drive letter for your CD-ROM) to BOOT DISK #2.


The d:\i386\support directory does not exist. The Winnt.sif file can be found in either the d:\i386 or the d:\support directory.
