Setting up a Ghost network disk for Virtual PC / Virtual Server

It is not uncommon for people to need to setup a Symantec Ghost (http://www.symantec.com/sabu/ghost/) network boot floppies to run inside of Virtual PC / Virtual Server.  Symantec provide a nice wizard to do this with – but unfortunately they do not include the driver for our emulated network card.

The driver that you need is the NDIS2 Unified DC21x4 driver from here:

http://developer.intel.com/design/network/drivers/nd2_300.htm

Once you have downloaded this package you will want to point the Symantec Ghost boot floppy wizard at the ‘mslanman.dosdriversethernetdc21x4dc21x4.dos’ file.  You should not need to specify any special parameters for this driver in order to get it to work.

Cheers,
