Can someone provide a step by step to create a winpe boot cd with adding network drivers for certain machines.

At the moment i cannot map a network drive from certain machines to the server that has the wim images.

Do the network drivers have to be for RIS rather than the regular network drivers?

Thanks

the i386 folder is found on the xp cd, or on your system; do a search for it.
enable search hidden files and folders...

You'll find the i386 folder as nobus states on your XP install CD and it will be part of your install folder structure that create on your hard disk.

This is how to create the Win PE CD

Very different when trying to create a WinPE 2.0 CD. Microsoft has very different step by steps than the one you gave me which was very basic.
So you are tellling me i have to work with WINPE 1.5 for XP and get OPK?
