c-class blades and RIS

We are trying to use Microsoft's RIS and loading some 685c and 460c servers. We are getting connected to our RIS server and then when it actual does the network boot after entering the initial server information and it is doing the TFTP boot process we are getting network time out errors. We have tried multiple RIS servers and are getting the same result. If we wait the servers will eventually load from the network. This process is about 2 hours per blade. Any ideas would be appreciated.

No. We have the NIC drivers. The problem comes during transfer of files. The client is asking for the file 8 to 10 times before trying the other name of the file. Vga.fo_ and vga.fon for instance. The RIS process takes 90 minutes to boot.
