David, I tried the diagnostic/driver diskette on both machines.  The machine
that displays "response timed out" from pinging also gets a diagnostic error
that the network adapter is not found.  The machine that displays a reply
from pinging also lists the stats of the adapter, which I assume means it's
ok.  On the problem machine with diagnostic error it says to:

1) check that there's a card installed
2) check that the PCI configuration in BIOS is set, otherwise...
3) switch adapter cards to see if the machine is the problem

I still get the diagnostic error.  I'm not sure what to do next.
