Ghost Boot disk won't load network Driver for Dell GX760

We are deploying workstations with Windows XP SP3. I created Ghost PC-DOS boot disks with network support for the Dell GX760 workstation after loading the NDIS2 network drivers from the dell site. The network driver for the 760 is the Intel 82567LM-3. After creating the boot disks and trying to boot the GX760 the network drivers won't load. I get the following DOS errors:
Pro0008E: Invalid decimal digit in Protocol.ini file (not sure what parameters need to be set)
Protocol Manager not present (it is)
Failure: Driver did not load, NDIS environment invalid.
MS-DOS Lan Manager v2.1 Netbind
7906 Unable to open PROTMAN$

I need the network drivers to load so I connect to the Ghostcast server and save the new image and then push the new image to all the other GX760's.

If someone has already created a boot disk with the proper GX760 network drivers that works and could send me a copy that would be great or could shed some light on what I am doing wrong that would be ok too.

Create a Universal network boot floppy image and use that to create your CD boot. set it to connect to your server, and put a copy of Ghost.exe on the shared drive .
