For those who are working with MDT I would also recommend to follow the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Team`s blog.

Be aware of the following bug described on their blog:Fix for ‘Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed” problem with MDT 2010

The Deployment Guys` blog are also an excellent resource.
