    Trying to install XP using RIS. The MS bootdisc only supports 3Comm and a handful of other cards. I am *googling* at the mo but if anyone can offer any suggestions; i have a D-link card installed via a PCI slot.

    Thanks

    Boyce my buddy now you see why i ended up using VMWare.. you can do RIS setups just like that! sorry cant be much of a help looking for a RIS driver for the actual card but if you hit a dead end and you dont have a VMWare or Virtual PC then you can always download a 30 trial of vmware to run your RIS setups on.. 8)

    Is the network card able to do a network boot ?

    if so boot using the card rather than the boot disk and then you can add the drivers into your RIS install manually and modify your answerfile

    if this is possible let me know and i will try and help with it

    The network card is PXE compatible and the facility is there in the bios, but not on the boot order menu.

    Just set the network card to boot and you will get the F12 option before the pc boots in the bios order.
