  3. Click Next.
  4. Choose the appropriate communication options, including what group they will be placed into after the install. Note that you can move clients after they restore communication.
  5. Choose the remote push option and click Next.

  7. Click the button "find computers".
  8. Use one of the options such as IP range to find and add the computers you need.

  9. Use the add button to add the computers to the list on the right.
