XP Pro on DL385 G2

Hi All -

Trying to get XP Pro installed on a DL385 G2. Yeah, don't ask.. Not happy about it, but it's gotta be done. Any ideas on how to accomplish this task? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. Looks like it will work great. However I added the driver of the controller within the build and the unattended still states that it can not see it. I checked the i386 folder within the build and it contains the driver it states it can not see. Any suggestions?

I finally got it working, but now having difficulties trying to find a 2000 driver for my nic's NC373i's.

Got any ideas on how to get the NIC's to start working. I have tried just about everything. They are NC373i's. They are recognized, however they will not start. I have tried 2003, 2000 and DOS drivers. Nothing is working. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
