RIS NIC Issue, HELP

Guest

I have been using RIS on some IBM Thinkcentre' with basic Intel 100/1000
NIC's. Everything worked great after adding the NIC drivers to the RIS setup
and following the MS article on how to add third party nic drivers.

I recently ordered new IBM Thinkcentres which happen to be a diff model and
have a Broadcom Netxtreme Gigabit Ethernet card. I added the drivers as I did
with the prevous machines, but cannot get the image started. The PXE boot
loads as usual and attempts to locate a DHCP address. What is odd, is that
eventually about 1 minute later, it gets a DHCP address but then gives an
error:

PXE-E55: ProxyDHCP service did not reply to request

It eventually times out to
1962: no operating system found

I have tried everything under the sun:

I have tried adding the options 60, 66, 67 to DHCP servers which is what was
required because of seperate DHCP and RIS server

I have researched this issue, I have done everything I know to do.

Just so there is a little more info, the servers are on switches, there are
no routers in between nor proxy.

Please help. Thanks

What model ThinkCentre do you have? I have been fighting this probem for over
a week with MT-M 8189-3KU and am still unsuccessful in even getting past the
attempt to install the OS. I keep getting the "operating system image does
not contain the necessary drivers" error.

I created a $oem$ file under the base install and added every damn NIC driver
I could. Make sure you install the hotfix for that issue as well. Only then
would it work. Make sure it is under the base install instead of the image
install and it will work.
