File DSN won't allow setup on one particular machine.

We are trying to setup an Access table in OBDC so we can access it from MicroStation and ArcInfo.  We can successfully set up a connection on any machine but one.  Unfortunately, thats the one we need it on.  

The problem is that while making the connection it never activates the OK button for us to actually add the new file DSN. It's running NT 4.0 Server.  Anyone had this problem before or knows whats going on with this one machine.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

RE: File DSN won't allow setup on one particular machine.

I was going to ask the same thing.

I am running NT 4 at work and there is work just fine.
