[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional" /fastdetect
C:\="Microsoft Windows"

OK, here's my new boot.ini

Like I said, when I start up my PC, it gives me the option of choosing:
Win2K(drive D)
Win2K(drive C)
Win98(drive C)

...I hated having to go to the second page every time...

crap what were we doing again

(go back re read)

Ok you want dual boot so 98 can use the dsl, X and I said no lets just get win2k to work on the DSL.

I am going to start with getting win2k to work on the dsl. let me know if you want something else first.


Steve do you know if your dsl connection is DHCP or if it is STATIC IP adress's? The system may config all this for you.

First of all, can I remove the Win2K partition from "C", IF we can't get Win2K to use my DSL?

Yes it can be removed, however, I thought you wanted it on C. My fault.

You want win98 on c and win2k on d to be your final config?

OK, here are a couple of the settings-

DNS-"Disable"
Gateway-blank
Wins config.-"Disable"
Advanced-'Allow ATM Binding'-"NO"
Net Bios-blank
Bindings-Client for MS Networks(checked)
IP address-I have one entered, but, I was having trouble with 'lag' time, so they had me put that IP # in, but it's really NOT my IP...I think they called it a 'bluff IP'????

Yeah. Since I get to choose my O/S from the gate, I figured it wouldn't matter which one was the master/slave.

NOW I GET IT!!! You are referring to the OS as being a master or a slave. Usually only hard drives are referred to as master or slave when speaking in terms of the physical configuration.

OS's do not really have a master slave relationship. Maybe you loaded one before the other, but they are not master slave. Whenever win2k is in the picture it's boot loader is in charge of what OS gets to load.

I remember you said to run my 40GB drive as the master, since it's faster. That wouldn't really matter if I'm running a different OS on each drive, would it? The 15GB(Win98) would run at 5400, and the 40GB(Win2K) would run at 7200. I would only use the 15GB for the internet, so would it be OK to have THAT drive setup with 98, since it's the slower Hard Drive???

See what I mean??

Yeah that theory only works if you have your OS's booting from C. I wasn't thinking about a dual boot setup. You should have your most often used OS boot from C, if you want to be anal about it.


Do you want to email me the IP info? Go ahead if you do I am not sure if you care about posting it in public.

I actually spent about 9 hours on the phone with Verizon trying to get rid of the 'lag' that I had. I could surf fine for about 3-4 minutes, then I had a 30-45 second lag of dead time, then it would be good for 3-4 mins, etc... They had me switch all kinds of settings, insert 'bluff' addresses, etc...

PLUS...When I installed my 40GB HD, I/they couldn't get the settings to carry over to it, so if i pop in JUST my 40GB drive, I get the lag. WEIRD?????????

That is really strange. Where is X? I have very little experience with Winpoet and DSL and don't want to give you bad advice.

The one thing I am not sure about is if WinPoet is REQUIRED for your connection to work, or if we can just plug in IP information and have it work. I guess since win2k isn't running on your DSL now anyway we can not screw it up

Here it goes

in win2k right click on your my network places icon and choose properties

you should have an icon that says local area connection right click on it and choose properties

you should see where tcpip is installed at the top it should say 3com NIC

click the tcpip line and then click properites

click use the following IP address and enter the one you sent me (ends with .47) enter Subnet mask - 255.255.255.0 enter default gate (you get the idea)


do the same for the DNS box (only enter the dns you sent me ends with .39)


Click the advanced tab, click the DNS tab, UNCHECK the box next to register this connections address in the DNS
click OK 3 times
see if it works

Ken-

OK, It wouldn't recognize my 3 Com card. I put in the Software CD to install the software/drivers, but it said 'no WinPoEt adapter is found...use software', but when I try the software, it tells me it can only be installed on Win 95,98, and NT. In other words, it's an endless loop of futility!!

I'm here. What the hell is WinPoet? Is that what's on the left of the arrow in the Network Neighborhood pointing to the network card? In other words, a protocol?

Did you try the other settings? What kind of 3Com card do you have?

Uh oh, WinPoet is a PPPoE client that uses Microsoft Dial-up Networking and mimics the user experience for dial-up. This could really suck. It would be good to see if you can avoid it but it appears WinPoet also used RADIUS authentication.
