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. ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
