I have a Server2003 machine setup with many images for our Enterprise's different types of computers and it works great. However, recent machine purchases have included NIC chips from Broadcom and it looks like Server2003 does not support RIS with these chips although they are listed as supported. It seems to be a bug that Microsoft hasn't fixed. Has anyone been able to find a work around for this? I know for a fact that this is possible.
PS. Server2000 works fine with the Broadcom equiped computers.

Check the computer manufacturer's website, along with Broadcom's website. I've seen some NIC drivers include a directory of drivers specifically for RIS.

I tried all of that. Broadcom tells you to manually edit many lines of the driver files but this still changes nothing and I am sure that I have done it correctly. I have found fixes that people posted online, but none of them worked. We have many other types of NIC drivers that work fine for those NICs, but nothing works for these Broadcom chips.
