What is the IP address on the Windows 2000 machine set to currently? I know you said it is set to DHCP, but what address is it getting?

Based on what you are saying, I would assume the extra NIC on the XP box and the card on the 2K box both have 169.x.x.x addresses, which would allow LAN browsing and file sharing.

Seeing as the pc's are connected directly, sometimes things are simple to overlook.
Go to your internet connection on the pc with the modem and check the properties as you have to allow "other computers to connect through this computer to the internet" This may be a simple fix instead of al the brain scratching and thinking.
Can't remember where the route to get this tick box is at the moment.
Hope this helps.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
