With some laptop models, the NIC on the laptop docking station will show up
as a seperate NIC to the one in the laptop itself.

Windows XP Pro has an "Alternate Address" setting in the network settings.
I use this with my laptop and it works great.
Another easy way around would be to give her an second NIC. One for the
office and one for home.  Not a pretty solution but simple and easy for a
non technical person to understand.

I have a user that is using a laptop at work but wants to be able to connect
to her hi-speed internet at home.  The IP scheme here at work is static
while her hi-speed is DHCP.  What is the easiest way to configure a laptop
to use two different IP configurations?  She will need to be able to select
either option fairly easily since she is not a sophisticated user.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
