Trouble connecting WXP in W2K network

Trouble connecting WXP in W2K network

I have a small network of four W2K computers.  One is a W2k server.  I want to add a WXP Home computer.  This computer is used for DSL.  I added a second network card for the LAN.  When I went to My Network Places, I found both cards and a "network bridge".  I right clicked, went to properties, and chose TCP/IP to type the static address of my LAN.  Whenever I type the IP address on one connection, it appears on BOTH connections!  Of course, if I leave like that, I won't be able to use my DSL, because the DSL card is configured for DHCP.  If I take off the IP address from one card, both cards are now dynamically configured.  How do I make it so that one card has my LAN settings, and the other card stays dinamically connected?

RE: Trouble connecting WXP in W2K network

u must disable the bridge somehow
