    I keep 'losing' the icon for the faux server's ICS in Network Connections on a p2p workstation laptop computer that leads to the server/ICS modem on the main computer(six computers; 1 XP Pro-which has the modem, 5 XP Home). When this happens the shortcuts in Start, or Tray or on Desktop can't find their targets, just lead nowhere; then after a period it may show up again. Is there anyway to 'fix' or 'lock' the connection to the screen (like a drawing object in an art program can be locked)so I don't have to keep recreating the Network connection? My LAN Connection/1394/Network Bridge have been recreated 58 times! I've set up the entire network many times as well- running Network Setup on each computer with and or without the Windows Pro CD (I'm in sneakernet IT mode!!) I had SP2 on the Pro stations but removed it. Help?
