Ghost doesn't recognize Linksys NICs EG1032

It seems like no matter what I do I can't get Ghsot to recognize Linksys gigabit NICs.  The model number is EG1032.  How can I setup Ghost so that I can image computers with these NICs?

Thanks.

I agree with 2PiFL -- ditch ndis ASAP in favor of PXE.  

Alternately, try to keep a few cards on hand that you are sure you have ndis drivers for, so that you can pop them in long enough to load the image in the event that you can't get the drivers for the card(s) in the box.

BartPE or UBCD are nice, but if I go that far, I'm probably using the DriveSnapshot plugin or Acronis and ditching Ghost entirely.
Another option is to find a couple 3COM Gigabit nics and use them for the ghost process, then swap them out to use the linksys as operational NICs.

I just downloaded the DOS driver, so I am going to try that.  If that doesn't work I will just put it on an external drive and either use BartPE or UBCD.

Thanks

I am running Ghost 8.0 and it has worked flawlessly for 4 years now up until the point of installing the Linksys EG1032 card into the end users machines. I can no longer Ghost up images because these idiots didn't provide the buying community with a SIMPLE NDIS Basic DOS Level 1 Driver! Hoe hard is that to create? I can't answer that. How hard is it to find it using every terminology know to mankind in Google? So far 48 hours and i cannot get my hands on the driver! I have, however been able to donate to the above link in hopes of obtaining the Marvel driver but alas that didn't pan out either. Can someone simply drop the driver on me if i shoot you my email address? I would be very grateful and be able to move onto the next project! May the first person that gets the driver to me be blessed with 100 Virgins this weekend that will be at their beckon command!
