I'm about convinced that it's problem is a hardware problem of it's own. I'm going to make it last in line to address so that I KNOW that it's problem isn't actually a problem on a different box. >They will all share files, but now the ICS doesn't work at all on >any of the >machines. Just the 2k server and the xp box right now can share files.

What I installed and uninstalled was the networking stuff on the 98 box. No installing and uninstalling stuff on the 2k server and the client xp box. Only thing was to replace the nic in the 2k server box. With 2k, it doesn't forget info you give it for hardware. For example, if I were to place the old nic back into the 2k box it would remember all my settings that I had for it without my redoing it. I wouldn't have to set it up again. I don't know how to tell it to forget settings for old hardware.
