    I am having trouble both in trying to image to a netowrk pc and also trying to pull an image off of a netowrk PC. I am not running a domain. The PC where the image resides is a windows XP machinge with out SP2. I have shared a folder and given the everyone group full rights under the security tab and also under the share tab. I then boot the PC i am trying to image from the rescue cd and browse out to the PC and the share and i can see the image, but when i try and tel it to image it says that the file is not a true image file or it is currupt i know it is not currupt becuase i have run a check on it from the PC that it resides on. When i try an put an image on the same share from a networked pc i get an error that states it is not a valid location any help would be great thanks
