not 100% sure, but this may be of some help.

SYMPTOMS
After you run the System Preparation tool (Sysprep.exe) mini-Setup Wizard, TCP/IP settings that were statically entered, such as DNS server settings, may be lost. Also, the computer configuration settings may return to obtaining an IP address automatically.
CAUSE
This behavior can occur because when the system preparation image is placed on another computer with a different network adapter, the new adapter is installed and defaults to DHCP-assigned IP information. This behavior is by design because the network setup defaults to obtaining an IP address automatically from DHCP.
RESOLUTION
To work around this issue, you can use the Netset.exe tool from the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit to reapply the network settings after Setup.

For additional information about the Netset.exe tool, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
268781 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/268781/EN-US/) Description of the Netset.exe Tool in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit
STATUS
This behavior is by design.
MORE INFORMATION
Windows 2000 stores IP information on a per-network adapter basis. During the System Preparation mini-Setup Wizard, any network configuration changes are ignored (only the "InstallDefaultComponents = Yes" parameter in the [networking ] section is allowed ) so the parameters cannot be specified in the Sysprep.inf file.

This image was created from scratch and used on the same PC so there is not a different NIC in that machine to cause this problem, however I did try what was specified in your reply(by the way thank you for giving me this info) but unforatuntly it did not fix the problem?
