Symantec Ghost boot disk error: 33 Unable to bind.

Just got Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition v 8.  Trying to set up a ghost boot disk that will work with an emachine (T3025).  I downloaded the dos driver and used the ghost boot disk wizard to create the diskettes (2).  I get the following error:

Error:  33 Unable to bind.

I have double-checked my protocol.ini to make sure I'm entering the right NIC under drivername.  The network adapter is called NVidia nForce MCP Networking Controller.

I have all the files needed that Symantec's lists to have for the disk to work.  I've done this before with no trouble.  I need to be able to do this asap.  All suggestions are welcome and very much appreciated.

I hate giving suggestions that aren't addressing the problem...

BUT... is there a way to pop in another NIC and and try it?  Ghost is finicky as hell with NIC's, and maybe it just doesn't like it.  If the problem persists with a different NIC (but I think that's the problem), my only other suggestion would be to try another copy of Ghost.

You can also try a reinstallation of ghost, or the more basic step of a good cleaning of the drive, as mentioned before ghost is really specia some times
