    I'm setting up some w/98 machines. PNP finds the NIC.
    I click on "have disk" and point at the drivers. It seems
    to be happy.

    When it's done I have a machine with working IP/TCP (I can ping and
    telnet anywhere) but when I click on "connect to the internet" or
    Internet exploere icon instead of getting the one-time screen that
    lets me connect via LAN I get a splash screen that tries to connect to
    MSN via modem.

    What am I doing wrong ?
