Ghost boot CD for Intel card

Ghost boot CD for Intel card

(OP)
Hi, does anyone have any suggestions on how to build a ghost Boot CD for an Intel(R) Pro/100 VE network card.

I did find information on the intel site and also from a similar post in this forum but still no joy.

The card is in a Dell Latitude D505 and I desperatley need to get the image onto my main server.  

I got instruction from the intel site in reference to Ghost and this problem so I was able to download the correct driver.
I think I may be going wrong with the actual creation of the CD.  
What burning software is the best to use (Roxio/Nero) and what is the best way to go about creating the CD?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Ghost boot CD for Intel card

This may not help with the CD problem. but if you are desperate enough it is at least another way of looking at it. I had the same problem (Ghost 7.5 and intel Pro 100 VE)with creating a ghost boot disk. I was using a floppy though. I am assuming your laptop doesnt have a floppy? Can you perhaps get hold of an external USB floppy that will act as a boot device? In case you can here is the way I got the floppy boot disk working. I looked on www.intel.com under support downloads and drivers and, typed in the name of the card in my case the 100 VE. Then select OS as DOS. Two self extracting exe files are on offer PRODOS.EXE and PRODOS2.EXE. Choose the second one. In the ZIP you will find a detailed text file describing the fix. Basically you just create a ghost boot disk in the normal fashion. then delete the old driver file from the floppy and replace it with the new one, and hey presto the problem is solved. I was paranoid enough to also specify some parameters when I made the boot disk Hmmm . think it was -fn but hey it is in the text file supplied by intel. Cheers Lupus
