Remote Installation Services

I had Remote Installation Services (RIS) running on a Windows Server 2003 install about a year ago.  For some time I tried to move away to a Linux based remote installer, but that did not fare well.  I would now like to reinstall RIS on the Windows Server 2003 machine.  I have reinstalled RIS through Add/Remove Components, and I have the old RemoteInstall directory (D:\RemoteInstall), but I cannot seem to find any way for it to use this directory instead of reinstalling all the files (through the settup wizard).  I just want it to begin working with the old directory.

You still need to run RISETUP which then prompts for an install CD.  If you have the other source patched, then simply follow the wizzards during RISETUP and then replace the source folder with your own.  You'll need to restart BINLSVC after this.
