Thanks very much for gathering all these links in 1 place !!

As I begin to read through & study these, I'm impressed by just how much information is available,
even though it does require to RTFM - Microsoft style !

and it seems that many, including myself, come to MSFN as hobbyists &/or "filesharers", probably not employed in I.T.,
and typically wanting everything to be handed on a silver platter, and getting p***ed if/when it isn't !

so, as I read, make notes, & dL the available video tutorial-presentations,
then "suddenly" a whole LOT more begins to make sense,
and I also appreciate even more, the creative efforts of so many of the people here who code various GUI apps
to make the strict/traditional command line I.T. approach "clickable".

still, if a hobbyist is willing to invest the time to "S"TFM ("Study" TFM),
slowly but surely they'll begin to gain the same knowledge of the employed I.T. pro -
it's available to anyone willing to pay the price of effort & persistence thru the frustration ;)

Added link to WDS F11 Server Selection:
http://www.deployvis...d=70&EntryID=99

Basically you add additional WDS Servers into your main WDS screen. The only thing you should configure in the additional servers is to specify the AD Server to make things faster. Then when you PXE boot a client, you are given the option to press F11 to select between deployment servers, or press F12 to boot off the primary server. This only works on Server 2008 R2. I have tested it out and seems to work.

Unless you're forbidden from doing so, even Microsoft recommends using at least MDT to do most of this. I know a lot of actual OEMs cannot, but otherwise use MDT if you're doing a lot of building of machines and software ;).
