I have one computer with a fresh install of Windows 2000 server, I need a step by step guide to setting up RIS for network installations.

The computer has 3 hard drives, 1 for windows server partition and the others will be used for RIS,AD and OS Images

I am having trouble configuring the below correctly.

Setting up Domain
Setting up DNS
Setting up DHCP
Setting up RIS and Active Directory

What must I do in order to configure RIS correctly so that I can install operating systems from the server.

Hi Jay Jay thank you for your response. I can get the entire process to work however the problem occurs that in most scenerios the windows 2000 image that is being installed from the client machine usually gets a STOP error and this is due to conflicting IP addresses. Today It worked once but then I keep getting the STOP error. Seems to occur when I use Static IP for the server however RIS wont work if i let the router obtain the ip and if i use static it doesn't let other computers connect to the internet.

you should have a static address on the server and let it doll out IP addressed using DHCP - currently your router is doing this yes?

yes when the server was assigned an IP address I assigned it the same static IP address. But it seems that it conflicts with other computers on the network.

you need to find which machine has got that othe address - i would disable DHCP on the router temporarily and assign static IPs until you have DHCP setup on the server

I can look in the router settings and it doesn't show any IP addresses being the same. Have you ever encountered the error I detailed above its a blue screen that appears right after windows 2000 is about to format it says "STOP ip conflict another computer has the same ip address. I managed to get it to install the windows 2000 OS once but then keep getting network conflicts... Also is there any way I can create windows 98SE images as well as XP images with RIS it seems to only allow me to Image Windows 2000 professional.

I found this but I won't be able to test this until the morning

Maybe driver issue, but if you still know how to install other images it would be great.
