I am unable to use this process, as the XP computers won't connect to the
server through a browser either. Sorry!
Okay, good thoughts...I did those...the CIECW fails on part of the Email
configuration, apparently no matter how I set it up (Email is currently being
handled by a different server, so it doesn't really matter anyway), but the
rest of it works just fine. It ends up making no change in the situation:
Boxes still won't pull addresses (I had one box getting DHCP successfully,
none of the others would; but ironically when I ran the CEICW the one stopped
working!) or use DNS or WINS to find this DC as a domain controller.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what this means? I've looked over the DNS and DHCP
management consoles a number of times and they look okay; is there something
specific I should be looking for?
One thing that I did find, which may be the problem but I'm not sure how:
Running the Best Practices Analyzer, I get an error that "DNS CLIENT IS NOT
CONFIGURED: The DNS client is not configured to point only to the internal
IP address of this server." ...Unfortunately that's all it will tell me, and
the article it points to for more info is just the standard 'How to
configure' article I've read ten times, and I did everything in there and
have triple-checked it, but I can't see ANYWHERE that the wrong DNS address
Still working on this, and really appreciate your help, thank you...
