Someone help me with ImageX
I've been trying to wrap my head around imagex and it seems so simple in concept but for some reason, I'm having the hardest time understanding how to capture an image with it.

there's some concept it seems with the capturing process that the windows AIK help file documenting how to use imagex and all of the online how to's I've read that are almost assuming that I know how to do something important that I'm not. I'm missing out on some concept that I feel is just absent from these tutorials.

Here's where I'm at.

I've got a laptop I've installed and customized vista on and sysprepped.

I've used AIK to build a winPE disk with imagex and a generic config file for file exclusions and I can boot that disk into winpe, browse the disk and see image x.

I'm trying to run the command they give to capture the image but it doesn't seem to be working.

Now... here's where I'm confused. They say to run the command prompt for imagex on the technician computer (which is my main computer with windows AIK installed on it) but how am I supposed to capture an image of the laptop sitting next to me on the desk if I'm opening up imagex on my main "technician" computer???

Is there some big picture concept that I'm missing here?? Please help!

Edit: also worth mentioning is that I've got the laptop hooked into a router that an image server is attached to. I've tried running Net use m: \\servername\images$ (where the images are stored on C:\images$ on the server's hdd) and I get the error "the network name cannot be found"

It's part of a workgroup called "pcconfig" so I tried Net use m: \\pcconfig\servername\images$ and it says "the network path cannot be found"
