Add NIC Driver to existing RIS image issue
Posted on 2004-04-09
I have setup a RIS server and have been successful in adding third party NIC drivers. I have the server setup as follows:
All my NIC drivers are in the BaseOS directory which was used to create subsequent customised images. Eg DTwithApps is a desktop image configured and re-rised. BaseOs is not customised - its simply a OS install of XP Pro.
I have a new notebook (Tecra M2) I want to create a RIS image for. The current drivers do not work (basically says cant find network drivers). IS it possible to add the new NIC drivers for the Tecra M2 in NBwithApps (ie in a customised RIS image)?
Ive seen lots of posts that explain how to add additional OEM drivers by updating ristndrd.sif (I can already do this). This file only resides in my BaseOS directory. I don't want to add it here as I would have to recustomize all my image settings. Subsequent directories have riprep.sif in their template areas..
Does anyone know how I can add NIC support into a customised RIS image without starting from scratch via the BaseOS RIS source?
