Mounting a Windows PE Image commands

This section gives the user the commands to mount winpe images however these are mistaken. For example it says: To prepare 32-bit Windows PE for entering "imagex /apply c:\winpe_x86\iso\sources\boot.wim n c:\winpe_x86\mount\"...copy the image contents. The command should be mounting winpe.wim not boot.wim. The path of the image is also wrong. The winpe image is not in the iso\sources folder. And the switch used is not for mounting but for applying. This applies to all the commands for mounting winpe.wim images and examples. Thanks

Note from the Author or Editor:
These are examples using a boot.wim, which can work with either the default boot.wim or custom boot.wim. If you work with winpe.wim, you replace the default Boot.wim in the \ISO directory with your new customized image. The image must be called Boot.wim. For example, copy c:\winpe_x86\winpe.wim c:\winpe_x86\ISO\sources\boot.wim

Last paragraph

Last paragraph states that if (on Windows 7) a remote use establishes a Remote Desktop session, that "... it (the session) can even be used when other users are also logged on to the computer. In this way, multiple users can share a single workstation and use its resources." I tried a number of configurations in an attempt to get this to work without success. I believe the above statement may be in error, or it may apply to a Windows Server product and was accidentally included here (for Windows 7). Providing a correction &/or further details on how to get this functionality to work would be helpful.

Note from the Author or Editor:
If a user is listed on the workstation’s Remote Access list and is not otherwise logged on, he or she can initiate a new Windows session. The Windows session behaves as though the user were sitting at the keyboard. There can be only one active user, either a remote user or a local user.
