Description
============

    Due to VIA Networking Velocity Gigabit Ethernet Adapter driver files didn't bundled 
in Windows 2000 Professional Compact Disc, thus we need copy driver files manully to 
RIS server directory 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 getndis.inf RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386
       copy getnd5b.sys RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386
       copy getndis.cat 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 getndis.inf, getnd5b.sys and getndis.cat 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 binlsvc
