SBS Remote Install Printer driver problem

I have a CD-less HP D530 I want to install Windows XP Professional (SP2).

Have setup Remote Install OK, but get the typical Printer Drivers error (not for the network card on the machine). I have downloaded the latest network drivers for this machine from HP, and followed the instructions for RIS in the attached txt file

The sif ristndrd.sif file has the following

[Unattended]
OemPreinstall = yes
OemPnpDriversPath = "$oem$\$1\Drivers\NIC\"
DriverSigningPolicy = Ignore
FileSystem = LeaveAlone
ExtendOEMPartition = 0
TargetPath = \WINDOWS
OemSkipEula = yes
InstallFilesPath = "\\%SERVERNAME%\RemInst\%INSTALLPATH%\%MACHINETYPE%"
LegacyNIC = 1

What/where have I missed something. Yes I have stopped and started binlsvc many times.

You hav specified that it is a CD-less pc.  Can you simply share a CD drive from another computer on the network and install it normally with the disk that way?  You may also be able to install it directly through the network...add local printer, select tcp/ip port, enter ip address....

Ended up doing just that. Patched in a DVD ROM and installed. These other solutions were getting tooooooo hard.
