    I have installed a RIS server and have a DHCP server running now with a few
    IP's for it. I have th server ruuning and when I go to boot from PXE (from
    the network card) it starts to boot from there but than gives me this error.
    'No DHCP or ProxyDHCP offers made"
    Any ideas?

    Actually I got the DHCP to work I think. My media was bad. but now the next
    step it is saying "no boot filename received" I created the RIS and it
    created the shared file and boot folder I think. I created it using the
    instructions from the same link you sent me.
    Any ideas?

    I do not have option 60 to choose from. i found that answer somewhere else
    also and it said something about reinstalling it from a RDP cd if if it
    wasn't there. How do I get option 60?

    Actually according to the microsoft article you sent those options should not
    be configured if the server is the same as the DHCP server. So those options
    were not configured on mine wich is right as the RIS is the same server as
    This is the article I used to install. Do you what files should be in the
    remote install folder?
    Also I found this in the instructions "
    RIS supports only the remote installation of Windows 2000 Professional. "

    I am tring to install server2003 is this a problem?

  8. About W2K3, the main problem is that you can only build one partition.

    I wouldn't use RIS for servers, but the new WIM image (require SP2 to
    upgrade RIS)

    I do have service pak2 on the server I am using. I have no other choice to
    load this server as it is a NAS server from IOMEGA and it has no cdrom or USB
    port or Floppy:( But I should be able to load it this way right?

  10. WIM is just a new format for delivering OS. It can be deployed through the
    network as RIS, but the image server must be running W2K3 SP2 to be able to
    deliver in wim format.

  12. Is your image server (ris) a W2K3 with SP2 ? are you in mixed mode ?
