Wireless USB Adapters and Symantec ghost compatibility

Hi

I am trying to use Ghost cast server to image PCs which have Netgear USB Adapters as their primary network adapters.  Anyone know how to boot the PCs from a boot disk so that the USB adapters get recognised and so the server can see the clients?

Thanks in advance for your help

Which network card are you using?
It comes down to weither the drivers are compatable with dos and that there is a compatable usb loader for the nic.

It's a Netgear WG111v2.  Just heard from Netgear and they don't have DOS or NDIS drivers for that.  Do you know of any alternative ways to get this running using the Ghost boot disk?

The alternative looks like you might be best off using BartPE.
This will load you into a Windows XP minimum install running off a boot cd. Install the negear drivers and setup the ghost plugin should give you all the functionality that you want, check out these links:
