    The network I've set up is working ok at the moment, but the 7 or so Win 98 SE PC's we have all have their IP addresses manually configured, whereas the WinXP Pro PC's all have theirs automatically assigned by the Win Server 2003's DHCP. When I change the option to "Obtain address Automatically" on the Win 98 PC's, they dont connect to the network.

    Is there any way to get them to automatically obtain an IP address, or should I just leave well alone since they're working anyway?


    TIA

    Are you rebooting the machines after you set them to obtain an IP address automatically.
