We use Samba and Linux here but I like RIS for deploying workstations. I know that they list Active Directory as a pre-requisite for RIS, but would it be possible to use a RIS server to deploy XP to workstations without converting the whole domain to AD?
Could I make one box that's a domain controller and then put RIS on it to avoid this? Or does it actually need the computers in the active directory that it's going to deploy to?
Anyone know of a way to use RIS and the DC in a linux environment to deploy Windows OS's?
