Using RIS to deploy OS which is in a different language to the server


I have windows 2003 English server. I want to be able to deploy dutch versions of XP to my clients. When I boot my client laptops into the network I get an error saying:

 message: the system cannot find the path specified
a error occured on the server
 please notify your administrator

I know I need to edit some OSC files, but I cannot find a decent microsoft article that explains the process. Can anyone help?

You can set regional options language options in the winnt.sif file.

So copy the image and just add these lines to the winnt.sif file using the correct codes found here

This option sets the language of your installation. Please refer to the ref.chm file in the Deployment Tools for more information. 00000809 is for the UK

This is another value you may wish to look in to although I haven't used it

This option sets the language group of your installation. Please refer to the ref.chm file in the Deployment Tools for more information.
