After  you install the new Microsoft Loopback Adaptor, the computer
will ask you to configure it's IP address and subnet mask.  Just check
the box above those fields that says "Enable Automatic DHCP
configuration"  and be done with it.  I'm running NT 3.50 and have had
no problems after the initial install.  The only drawback is that I
get an error from the DHCP when I'm not connected to the net and it
can't find the dynamic IP address.
