I'm having some issues imaging a new batch of Dells I received a few days ago. The new Broadcom network chipsets in them make Zen imaging impossible. After searching the forums for an answer, a co-worker suggested using a USB network dongle to image.

Would it be possible to use a 10/100 USB dongle such as the one here: to image a group of machines? I'm asking if there's any support for USB ethernet devices in the 2.6 kernel and if someone has already done this, to please share their experiences or insight. If anyone has gotten this to work, I'd greatly appreciate your wisdom.
