What was the command line that you used to inject the Network driver? There are specific toggles for storage/network/generic drivers. Also, I have had to talk with the hardware vendors a couple times because you need to get a version of the NIC Driver that can be SlipStream'd into a Windows 2003 OS ISO.
In the case of Dell, you have to extract the NIC installer to a directory and then unpack a file. I can't remember how to do this, but a customer of mine had to call dell to get the correct drivers.
then the petool command line should be something like:
petool.exe -i coldclone.iso -n "C:\NICDRIVER\"
TXTSetup.OEM ..... I don't recall a NIC Driver using that, maybe a storage driver since it needs a txt installer when you press F6 during Windows Boot and need to load it immediately.
