RIS is a whore to setup initially, and keep in mind it will only Deploy 2K Pro and Win XP Pro.

Best bet seriously, download the M$ whitepaper on the topic and follow it word for word, letter for letter and it will work. It's unfortunately not one of those things you can muddle through and it will just end up working (like exchange! ;)

If you have any specific questions I can forward them to the guy who setup our RIS system here.

Which is doubly funny because my department is also called RIS.

What does RIS do exactly?

Just curious?

Because we use Windows 2000 Pro with Unattended installs with answer files off our Netware servers, then use Java Code and Z.E.N. Works for automatic application deployment.

It's the equivalent, but without dirtying your network with Novell. :O

You can use .msi installer packages with it to bundle your apps and deploy Service Packs. It works quite well once it's setup. It also supports PXE booting, which is handy.

Don't you ever insult Novell.

NDS is what Microsoft's Active Directory is based on ;)

And what you mean? Slipstream your ServicePacks into your i386 source directories ... :p
