    Copy files to USB pen in safe mode?

    How can I copy files off a laptop that will only boot into safemode?

    I need to copy outlook inbox .dbx files which are quite large so not floppy.

    Can I network whilst in safe mode?

    OS is windows 98 with virus problems. Problems with kernel32.dll

    Not my PC and I don't have the exact details.

    I don't know if win98 safemode has a network support option... check see if it does.

    Also, maybe do it from DOS? I'll have a more in depth look for pen drives in DOS, but this might help: http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm particularly section 4.

    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    The driver won't load in safe mode anyway...

    safe mode will (probably) disable the driver, as it boots using safe default drivers (e.g. 640x480x4 graphics.)
    do it the linux boot-disc route or the dos route as Kez suggested.

    gah! Kez beat me to it.
