Ghost.exe won't start

I have this problem:

I have used Bart's bootable cd-roms for a long time and this has worked fine - I have also been adding drivers to this CD from Bart's site.

Recently, for some reason, I lost my directory with these files so I had to build the CD all over when I was going to add some new drivers. So I did - and it worked fine... kind of. It worked fine on all the computers that had the NIC driver built in Bart's CD. But the computers that I had to add the CAB-files for has this scenario:

The CD boots fine, network boots fine without errors. I am able to map the drive on the server, I type 'dir' and I can see ghost.exe and all the files on the server share... but when I type in 'ghost' then the cursor just blinks on the next line for ever...

Maybe this has something to do with memory? I've tried to boot without mouse drivers and some other unessesary drivers without luck..

Has anybody had this error before? Or similar?

Two of the drivers that I've added that doesn't work is:

Intel PRO/1000 Network Driver v3.46 080803
Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet NDIS2 Driver v7.03 (031002)

Fixed it by starting ghost with the -fni parameter: ghost -fni

I have the problem w/a HP 5100 and a Broadcom NetXtreme and I have -fni in the command line.  Also have the latest 7.5 exe's.

System boots opens Ghost and stall at connecting to GhostCast session.
