I thought RIS worked differently to imaging services. I was told it sends 
the install files to the client and then continues to run the OS install 
which is made automated. So its different to Zen Imaging and Norton Ghost.

I was hoping that someone new or had a linux server that could distribute 
images (ms os) using pxe or something like that.
