  1. after install in networking I no longer need to fill in dns for static
    I can get on internet without it also a warning when closing the nic window says I have 2 systems something about multiple default gateways causing conflicts
    and same machine but with 32 bit xp both service pack 2 does not do this
    the nics are
    3: mt1000;server100;1394 connection
    mt is not configed yet
    the server and 1394 use same gateways ,is this the issue
    and why don't I need a dns ip address's anymore

    Are you sure you needed the manual DNS before? If you din't fill it in, the DNS server is taken from DHCP.

    And yes, configuring multiple default gateways without knowing what you are doing is indeed a bad idea. (And you obviously don't know what you are doing if you are trying to configure your firewire port as a network interface... Or do you really have firewire netwok instead of ethernet?)

    the 1395 was preconfiged on install as a network port on a radeon video card
    so since I don't need it I should disable.
    and I thought I said all my xp 32bit installs aways needed a dns to work????
    I did write that a little confusing
    the 32bit xp pro spk2 always needed dns to go to WAN
    the xp 64bit pro spk2 does not scary
    as to date updated dual mt1000 server drivers still same issue

    at least you weren't to condescending ya right
    update fixed
    it was the 2nd unconfiged unplugged nic that had a dynamic setup (I assume)
    I disabled it and now the WAN is blocked

    I am using a ASUS p4s8x-mx mobo and have currently installed SATA HDD (160gb) and have installed the raid controlers from the mobo cd through the 'made' floppy. The probelm is that after I have created a 2gb partition I cannot format it. An error stating that the drive might corrupt is seen. Please help.
