    XPSP2 flat CD image that I would like to use for mulitple installations. We
    have 5 distinct types of workstations / laptops with different drivers for
    video, audio, etc. I've created an $oem$\$1\Drivers structure and populated
    the subdirectories with the necessary drivers. All works well for the
    hardware type specific to those drivers.

    I created a 2nd .sif file for another hardware type (MPC laptops) and put it
    in the i386/Templates folder, created a separate subdirectory under Drivers
    ("MPC") and populated that folder w/ the MPC-specific drivers. On a custom
    installation, the MPC laptop connected w/o issue to the "image" that the sif
    file controls and did a remote installation but downloaded the whole
    "drivers" folder (including the MPC subdir) to the laptop's C: drive. It used
    the drivers that were in the "Drivers" folder and not the ones inthe MPC
    folder, even though I changed the "OemPnPDriversPath" to reflect the MPC

    I've also tried creating a "MPC" folder under the "$1" folder - no luck. Any
    ideas? I really wanted to use the single image and have seen references
    online that say its possible. we're not overly interested in using RiPrep for
    now so any ideas would be appreciated.
