Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi guys.

I need help on configuring RIS or the Remote Installation Service on a Windows 2000 server. How can I install Win 2000 remotely using RIS? And what are the prerequisites or the minimum requirements needed in installing. Please send me also an instruction on configuring RIS first.

Thank you all.
