    I got the following warning:
    "The System has detected a conflict for IP address 192168.2.100 for system having hardware address 00 :10: DC:CC:F8:A3"
    What does it mean and should I do anything about it.I'm running with Windows 98 installed.

    Do you use a router? This looks as if it could be a router issue.

    Reboot the computer, my guess is the other one is set to that IP address and by rebooting, the second computer will pick up the next available.
