You may wish to consider that on a Dual Boot machine, the 2000 install (possibly the first install?) may have control over the TCP IP stack?? This may cause you to be virtually "locked" out,,, I have seen this issue before, but only on dual boot machines, and only the original install that originally configured the stack, had control,, the next install kinds Piggy-backed for the connection information,,,
Just a thought?
