I work for a school and just bought about 250 Lenovo SL500 laptops and they have a Realtek based NIC in them.  I've tried downloading the drivers from Realtek and from Lenovo to make the GhostCast boot disc, but it just says the adapter is not present in the system or fails to load the network card driver.

I just figured this out, I used the built-in drivers that came with Ghost Solution Suite with these laptops.

Go into Ghost Solution suite and go to where you built your boot disc.  Make sure to select the show all drivers checkbox at the bottom.

Choose Realtek RTL8169 Gigabit Ethernet as your network card driver and you should be fine.  Picks up our network cards at least and we purchased these in June of 2009.  So at least for this batch it works good.

Hope this helps somebody cause I was afraid I'd never get these to clone over the network and with 250 to clone that was a scary prospect.
