I believe (though I haven't done it myself) that there is a DOS component of
WFWG which you can run without Windows to allow use of WFWG networked drives
and printers.  I believe that you can access this using the

net /start

command which starts the WFWG networking before you actually run Windows.  I
had a friend who set a bunch of 286's up to a 486 like this a while ago.  I
think the service is called workstation or something similar.  Look at the
options for the  net  command.
