    Zak to do a Multiboot, create a floopy boot disc, (Just disc one of two) for the selected driver.

    Once disc one has been created, copy the driver folder eg "b57, intel" etc go through the procedure in the instructions and put a new confic.sys file in the root of your pendrive. Should look something like this....

    [menu]
    menuitem=Intelpro, INTEL PRO R1000 DOS FOR Optiplex 755,DHCP
    menuitem=Broadcom, Broadcom B57XX DOS For Lattitude D530, DHCP

    [IntelPro]
    DEVICE=\E1000\protman.dos /I:\E1000
    DEVICE=\E1000\dis_pkt.dos
    DEVICE=\E1000\e1000.dos
    LASTDRIVE = Z

    [Broadcom]
    DEVICE=\B57\protman.dos /I:\B57
    DEVICE=\B57\dis_pkt.dos
    DEVICE=\B57\B57.dos
    LASTDRIVE = Z

    Bit's in bold are the folders for the two network card types on my network

    Remember of you have already booted of the config file you wont be able to replace the config file for a new one for some reason you have to create a new bootable usb from the start.

    Cheers for the links guys finally had a go at getting a USB Ghost pen drive working.

    Borrowed a pen drive from the Head of ITs office (he won't know its me thats took it )

    Got two drivers so far, and need to add around 5 or so more.

    You should look into fixing this if you get the chance (if only to save you carrying round a USB stick)
