Symantec Ghost can't find network card for Dell Latitude 620

I am attempting to Ghost several new Dell Latitude D620 laptops for my company using Norton Ghost 8.0. I am using the Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx driver. The boot floppies are not finding the network card, and are therefore not binding the to the network card. I am giving this a lot of points as I have to have this today, and I have already researched it with Dell and Symantec and found no answers.

Dell doesn't have/provide DOS drivers for that network card, but you may want to try these pages from Broadcom's site, which has drivers for the 5721 chipset (listed as the Broadcom chip on Dell's website) for multiple OSes, including DOS.

we looked at the links but none of it helped. We had to give in and load them one at a time, so I am going to close this with no answer.

This question although valid, needs to be deleted, I'm just not sure how to do so at this point. The help was greatly appreciated, however, just not helpful at this time. Dadids99, I appreciate your responding though!!!

I would like to add this final comment.

Davidis99, is the only expert listed that was able to add some support to my initial issue. Although his solution did not solve the problem, there even through Dell did not seem to be a solution that was useable. Therefore, after some considerable thought, WHILE waiting on how to delete the question, I decided that his solution was comprable to the manufactor's solution and should therefor be awarded the points.

Thank you Rindi for your help as well. I do apologize to EE for not taking care of this sooner and will not let it happen in the future.

Thank you EE and Davidis99!!!
