    Ok, lets try this again please. I am too dumb to figure this on my own. I am not familiar with bing or any other thing. I am trying to set up a dual boot system. I have Nt loaded on a system with no internet acces and want to put win 2000 server on the same system. NT does not accept my NIC card for whatever reason. Can I please get some detailed step by step on help on what I need to do. Please explain it like you would to a 5 year old. I appreciate any help.

    You know, it is possible that people are unable to diagnose the problem. You shouldn't just beg for help.

    Lets start by chosing which problem you want solved first. I would rather solve the Network card problem first before we go into dual booting.
    I need to know the exact make and model of the network card?

    Windows NT is a pretty old OS that most people simply have never used. Most people also probably don't have an active system in front of them to give you specific step-by-step instructions.

    Is there a specific reason you want to use Windows NT? Windows 2000 should provide all the same functionality unless you're trying to use a very old application that will only run on Windows NT 4.0.
