Stop Error When Performing a RIS Install of a PRO/100 VE

When performing a RIS install of Windows* 2000 PRO with SP2 integrated on a client with a Intel® PRO/100 VE adapter, you may get the following error:

Receive Windows 2000 STOP error 0x000000BB "Init failed, failure to boot from network"
To eliminate this error, rename or delete the following file in the source image:
Remote Install\Setup\(Language) \Images\(Dir_name)\I386\e100bnt5.sy_
This will force RIS to use the newer Intel supplied driver.

Note: This error can also be caused by use of an out-of-date Intel® Boot Agent. If the Boot Agent version is 3.0.03 or less, please contact your computer vendor for an updated BIOS containing a newer version of the Boot Agent.
