While running W2K Pro RC2, I can connect to my ISP (, but can't type in a web page (i.e. using IE5. For some reason, it only accepts IP addresses. I'm currently dual-booting between Windows 98 and 2000, and don't have any problems while using IE5 in Win98. My primary and secondary DNS Servers are identical to my 98 configuration. Any suggestions???

Did you do a complete install of IE 5 for the Win2k installation? I know NT 4 requires you to install the appplications for each OS you are running. if you are just launching the IE5 exe file from the Win98 installation, it may not be grabbing the DNS info from the DNS server.
