RIS : Remote Installation Service

Last night I finally got Remote Installation Service to work on my network. I have read about it a lot and knew it was possible, but yesterday my brain was firing on all cylinders and I worked out the DHCP kink which was probably stopping it before. It was a very exciting time seeing my slim line Dell PC network boot and start the install. I still have to experiment with installing all the needed applications, like Office, and then creating a full image.

You can see a short video of my setup here. It is created using the latest Divx version so you may need to update your player.
