Hi Everyone,

Setup:
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).

Problem:
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!

Good Day,
d:^)
