1.4. Final Thoughts

WDS and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 are big places. If I had to leave you with three things to remember as you work though the exercises in this chapter, they would be:

  • When testing, remember that the client needs to have 512MB of RAM, even if you deploy down-level operating systems like Windows XP.

  • To maintain a high-level overview, read through the exercises once before actually doing them.

  • WDS and Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 are best when used together. These components combined will form a very powerful deployment platform. Did I mention that they are free?
