    A few things.. has the card worked in the past?

    What exactly are you trying to achieve with the network setup disk? Internet Connection Sharing?

    Check the drivers for the card, and the associated software that usually comes with it- manufacturers annoyingly insist on forcing that on you.

    Also, right click on network neighborhood, goto properties. In the popup window, remove all protocols that you see there (TCP/IP, IPX/SPX are the most common..) Reboot. Then rerun the network setup disk.

    Can you tell us what type of card you're using? And can you see other computers in the network neighborhood?
