Ghost 2003 Network CD
Dec 18th, 2006 at 3:19pm
 
I did a search here after reading Nightowl's excellent guide to making Ghost boot CD's. Reading follow up postings, I was able to make a USB cd too. I now need to make a boot CD and add network support for individual NICS - not auto-sensing. Is this possible with the same small adjustments to NO's method? The NIC is a Broadcom. At the school I work at; all new PC's (IBM's) have no A drive.  I am successfully using an external USB 2.0 drive; however I need to try Ghostcasting now. I would certainly appreciate any info and I can pass this on to other co-ordinators. Thanks.

The following link says for *Ghost 8.x*, but it will work for Ghost 2003 as well:

How to Create a Ghost 8.0 Network Boot CD


The following link talks about modifying the boot program to perhaps *auto detect* what NIC is on the system:

it should also be possible to use an external usb floppy in lieu of the normal floppy, which you don't have.

one ext usb floppy (inexpensive) could be used on an unlimited number of machines.

i have used them on laptops which came with no internal floppy.

just offering another possible option.

Thanks very much for these answers. I am working on then now and will post a result.

The USB floppy is a good tip. I think I will use this until the CD is working. Thanks again.
