    don't really know what else to say paul, we had the exact same problem as you when we first began to roll out network install image to imac G5 clients.....we went through every possible scenario, what i would do is isolate a mac client or two onto a single switch with a osx server, don't use the server you 're using at the moment, set up a test server at the same update level e.g 10.4.10 and setup purely as a netboot server - no other services, and create the image and attempt rollout to one or two clients....

    i lost count of the number of times i deleted the image folders and stopped and restarted our netboot server, it's a moody sob at the best of times.

    I found that I had a duff 3COM switch that allowed to net boot but dropped all packets when it came to the install so it did a fsck and rebooted instead.

    i think you are right kingswood. I remember getting libz error when i was having the exact same problem to the one Paul is experiencing.....

    but that issue, SIU related, i noticed well over a year ago with osx 10.4 on ppc machines. I'm amazed it's still a problem and hasn't been patched.

    Thanks 'kingswood' - Once I've mounted the drive it's read-only! Not allowing me to replace the file!

    I'm pretty sure this could be it!
