How do you set up multicasting with the K2000?

Ok, this is the last chance before I ditch the K2000 (and maybe the entire Kace product line).
We have close to 2000 computers throughout out school district. We're going to reimage them over the summer. When we set up a multicast session, it hangs on trying to connect to the session and just fails after it can't connect.
I know the K2000 multicast feature only supports PGM. we configured our 6500 router for PGM, but the problem seems to be on the 3750 layer 3 switches we have running in each schools MDF.
Our environment is broken up into 7 buildings. Each building has 3 wiring closets connected to an MDF. The MDF has the 3750 switch and the closets have 2960 switches connected to the 3750. Each building is broken up into 4 vlans (each closet is a vlan). The MDF connects to the HS.
has anyone with this type of setup been able to multicast with the K2000?

We have also been disappointed in the multicast support of the K2000. Our switches do not support PGM at all so we are hoping that Dell implements IGMP in a future release. It doesn't solve your problem but I'm hoping that the more of us that raise this issue will result in a quicker implementation.
We have resorted to imaging machines in unicast batches, which works, but is obviously less than optimal.
