Hi Everyone,

Windows 2003 Standard Server w/ DNS, Acticve Directory, RIS (w/ Windows XP Pro SP1 to be remotely installed), and file server running.
IPCop provides the DHCP.
Outpost Pro Firewall, & NOD32 installed on Server.
Dell Latitude C400 laptop with NO way of booting a CD nor a Floppy (that proprietry cable & drives are no where to be found, and no way of getting into the current winXP Pro system - Owner does not know her admin password anymore and had deleted all user accounts).

I've never done this before, but I've gotten it all hookup to point of booting the laptop where it excepts the user name and password I made in the Server.  I then choose Automatic setup and so on... then get the error (Unable to create or modify computer account... Error: 00004E4F).

Please help?  What am I doing wrong? ...and I know the laptops MAC address, and GUID. Does those two items need to go somewhere?

Thanks for any and all help given.  Much Appreciated!
