I faught with DHCP and won finally, next I fought with permissions on the drive and space and I won that fight,
now one last fight that is when i go to install RIS on a client and I go throught the first screen where it asks for password and username and domain and then the second screen to make sure that you know that it will erase all data then it says invalid computer name and says restart computer.
How do I fix it
