trying to image a pc using WDS and get this error:'WdsClient: An error occurred with starting Networking: a matching network card driver was not found in the image'

I just built and WDS server with the help of the EE experts and sucessfully imaged a DELL laptop. Today I completed and image of an HP desktop and uploaded it to my WDS server. I hooked up another HP desktop and booted via PXE, got prompted to install an image but ended up getting this error; 'WdsClient: An error occurred with starting Networking: a matching network card driver was not found in the image'. After googling a little I realized I probably have to download the proper network driver from the HP website and "inject" it into my capture and install images. This is where I need help again. How do I actually get the HP drivers into those image files? I assume I will be injecting INF files, correct?

    well that worked great!!! I got passed the network driver error and I will give you the points. I am now going open another case because after I got passed the network error, I got hit with another WDSCLIENT error "wdsclient an error occurred while obtaining an ip address"
    I know there is a DHCP server on this VLAN because when I originally plugged in the desktop I want to image it found via DHCP. If you have a comment on this issue look for my new case, thanks
