    activating guest OS


    Pretty sure I already activated the Win2.8k on the guest OS but when I
    fire up it says 56 days left.
    So, I click on activate and get the message that the DNS name could not
    be found.
    It is connected to the net and has d/l all updates. I can also browse
    the web so not sure what the problem is?
