Affected Configurations

Solution
Use the Intel Ethernet drivers for Microsoft Windows 2000 (e*nt5.inf, e*nt5.sys) during the initial setup of a Windows XP RIS.

NOTE: Windows 2000 drivers should only be used during initial RIS setup. After RIS has completed, use the normal Windows XP network drivers (e*325.inf, e*325.sys) during the operating system installation.
