**  VIA Rhine Family Fast Ethernet Adapter
**  PXE BOOTROM for Windows 2000 RIS server                
**  v2.33  Jan , 2004


    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 fetnd5b.sys RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\i386
       copy netvt.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: 

       Copy the fetndis.inf, fetnd5b.sys and netvt.cat to this folder($oem$\$1\Drivers\Nic)
    3. Make the following changes to the .sif file to be used for this image installation:
        OemPreinstall = yes
        OemPnpDriversPath = Drivers\Nic        

       NOTE: The default name of the .sif file is 
       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
