Re: newly reinstalled XP but no connectivity

If you are using a Dell labeled Windows reinstallation disk, you will not get a request for the product code.  Dell installation disks are automatically activated when used on Dell computers originally delivered with that operating system.

Also, if you are installing Windows XP Home, you will not get any questions about domains, as this feature is not available in the Home version.  If you needed this capability you would require Win XP Professional.

I don't know what to tell you about steps 28 and 29, but it is just as well since at this point you have not installed a driver for your network interface adapter.

It appears things are going well so far.

Re: newly reinstalled XP but no connectivity

Jack/Bev,

Now I'm stopping driver installation at PCMCIA.  I can find  no PCMCIA on my Drivers and Utilities CD.  I find four PCMCIA downloads on the website-  all are for Inspirion and Latitude computers.  I look at compatibility and none is for Dimension PCs

Jack,

Thanks.  I'm installing XP Pro SP2.

What about PCMCIA for Dimension 4700?

Re: newly reinstalled XP but no connectivity

Hey, just thought of something- is PCMCIA only for laptops?

Jack/Bev,

I have connectivity.  Thanks so much for your patience, leading me by the hand through this installation.
