    Why would you put Win2k Server on a workstation? Do you need any of the server functionality? You probably had to assign an IP address when you set up the server and your DSL through the router has it's own IP address and won't let you onto the public network. I would set it up as a Win98 PC again unless there is actually something in the server software that you really can't do without.

    The reason why i put 200 server is to limit the people who use the computer towhat they can do i would put nt4 buti dont have it, im sick of fixing the problems that they cause, they have to much freedom on 98, i use 2kserver so they have to have login names and paswords, and limit them to what they can do so no one foriegn can screw with the computer, anyways i got it to work so thank you
