    Been on dialup for so many years. I finally took the plunge and I'm going over to DSL. Waiting for the gateway to be delivered. I just purchased a Linksys 10/100 ethernet card. Is there anything special that I have to configure in XP Pro for everything to work properly? I just noticed that the drivers for the card are for Win95,98,ME,NT4 and 2000. I went to Linksys and downloaded the newest drivers but no mention is made about XP. Could it be that XP will have its own drivers? Thanks.

    Just stick the card in and XP should find the appropriate drivers and install them

    Yep, what JJB said. Don't worry about the little monitor icon with the red X on it after you install the card... just means you don't have a connection.

    Really straight forward... once you get your dsl active and plug it in XP practically does all the work.
