I'm having a heck of a time trying to get an IBM Turbo 16/4 Token Ring PCMCIA card to work on my laptop running Windows XP. Reading the manual says that I have to install the IBM LAN client before installing the card. Fine. I downloaded the client, but when I try to install it, it gives me an error about not being able to run the program from a DOS box under Windows NT, and I have to restart into DOS. This being XP, I can't do that. Is there a way around this? I tried using the Add Hardware Wizard to install the drivers I downloaded manually, but when I select the *.inf files for the drivers, it says the file contains to information about my device. Obviously I can use this device on an XP machine, because there are XP drivers for it on the IBM website. I enabled SNMP and installed the LAN adapter manager from IBM, but that had no apparent effect. FYI, I am not a sysadmin for the network, just a user... the network is installed in the building I work in on a university campus. Thanks in advance, Andrew
