This is actually two seperate questions? How can I set a static IP address (and IP settings) for my bootable media so that I do not have to go in and configure eth0 after book each time? I looked in the ISO and their isn't a ifcfg-eth0 file or anything like that. I read the instructions and searched the net and all I find is how to do it after boot! DHCP is not allowed in my work enviornment Then once that is set, is their a way to map a network drive on the bootable media so I don't have to manually type my UNC path each time? Both of these seemed like straight forward things that Power Quest Drive Image and Symantec Ghost both support. I talked my boss into buying Acronis True Image because of the great reviews I read, and I'm going to look really bad at work if I can't "my new awesome software you just had to have" to work. THANKS FOR ANY HELP!!!!
