Has anyone found a boot disk method of RISing a laptop with a Xircom card ?
We are currently using Ghost to get our image onto these machine's but would love to be able to just F12 them.

Hi,

I might be too late on this, but are you looking for an MBA on disk for XIRCOM ?

That should be widely avail. If not contact me by PM.

Cheers,

Konstantin

79TransAm,

If we are talking about a Xircom card that is PCMCIA, you will not be able to do RIS through it. RIS does not support PCMCIA. See this KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;242920

Also be aware that besides the PCMCIA limitation, only certain non-PXE capable network adapters are supported by Microsoft's PXE emulation bootdisk (known as "rbfg.exe", Remote Boot Floppy Utility). Read this article to see this list:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;299538

So what you are left with in your situation is only being able to use RIS on your laptops if you have a docking station that has a network card that natively supports PXE, or has a network card that is supported by Microsoft's rbfg.exe.
