** ** ** VIA Rhine Family Fast Ethernet Adapter ** ** Application note for Windows 2000 RIS server ** ** Description ============ Due to this PCI 10/100Mb Ethernet Adapter driver files didn't bundled in Windows 2000 Professional Compact Disc, thus we need to add this adapter manually in order to successfully remote-boot Windows 2000 Professional client. To Do ===== 1. Copy following driver files for windows 2000 to I386 folder on the RIS image. It should be RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386. copy fetndis.inf RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386 copy fetnd5bv.sys RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386 copy netvt.cat RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386 copy vuins32.dll RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386 2. Create the $oem$ folder at the same level as the \I386 folder of the RIS image. For example: RemoteInstall\Setup\%language\Images\%dir_name%\i386 RemoteInstall\Setup\%language\Images\%dir_name%\$oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic Copy the fetndis.inf, fetnd5bv.sys ,netvt.cat and vuins32.dll to this folder($oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic) 3. Make the following changes to the .sif file to be used for this image installation: [Unattended] OemPreinstall = yes OemPnpDriversPath = Drivers\Nic NOTE: The default name of the .sif file is RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\I386\Templates\Ristndrd.sif NOTE: You can modify the folder name "Drivers\Nic" to other string you want, but this folder must be in the \$oem$\$1\. And you also changed the entry OemPnPDriversPath = [The folder name you modified] 4. Stop and restart the BINL service on the RIS server. Type the following lines at the command prompt, pressing ENTER after each command: net stop binlsvc net start binlsvcDownload Driver Pack
