When you start Windows 98 by using the "/d:n" switch, for example, by typing "win /d:n" (without quotation marks), Windows 98 may appear to start in safe mode with network support, but you may not have network support or connectivity. Note that you may experience this behavior even though this switch worked correctly in Microsoft Windows 95.
This problem can occur because Windows 98 does not support the "/d:n" switch, and does not support starting in safe mode with network support.
To work around this problem, do not try to start Windows 98 in safe mode with network support by using the "/d:n" switch.
