Ghosting a installation (boot diskette with network)

I have installed Windows 2000 just like I want it. Now I want to image this installation with Ghost, therefore I need to boot with a diskette with network-drivers for DOS so I can connect to a fileserver that has a share were I can store the image.

But I can't find any drivers for DOS as I could with our HP Netservers.

Does anyone have a guide how to do this? Any other ideas with this setup? Since I have a lot of servers to install and want to image them instead of making installations with the SmartStart CD.

You can start here, this will tell you the files required for the DOS boot disk

What NIC exactly are you using? The onboard NIC for the DL380 is as far as I know the 3120. DOS drivers would be here: http://www.compaq.com/support/files/networking/nics/Compaq_NC3120_Fast_Ethernet_NICs.html

The DL380 G2 is using the 3163 as onboard NIC. If you are using a separate network card, do a search on www.compaq.com for the model number (NC3120, NC3163, ...)
