No need to panic, this problem is easily solvable, so just take a deep breath and lets do this step by step. Since you obviously are able to burn cd's, lets have you burn service pack 4 for windows 2000 and then install it on the other machine. You can download SP4 HERE. Once it's downloaded, burn it to a cd and then install it on the other computer. Once that is finished, you will need to reboot. Once you have rebooted, try installing the driver for your network adapter again. Once the network adapter is installed, make sure you go to Windows Update and get all the updates, clicking CUSTOM and NOT EXPRESS. Make sure when it lists the updates that you can use that you check the HARDWARE, OPTIONAL list and check and see if there are any drivers listed there that you need. If there are, then download those to make your life easier on trying to find the right drivers for your devices. Once you have gotten all the updates from windows update, post back here and we will continue with any other drivers that are needed.

If on this computer it says designed for XP and i tried installing windows 2000 could that be a problem? The drive was wiped clean so i figured i could just install 2000 on it but it appears i'm wrong.

DO THE FOLLOWING ONLY IF YOU BUILT THE COMPUTER YOURSELF!
Right-click MY COMPUTER, click on PROPERTIES, in the new window that appears, click on the HARDWARE tab and then click the DEVICE MANAGER button. Are there any items listed that have yellow exclamation/question marks next to them? If there are, please list them in your reply.
Next, download install and run Everest Home Edition, which you can download using the link in my signature. Once you have it running, click on REPORT and the Report Wizard should run. When you come to the REPORT PROFILES page of the wizard, make sure you have radio button next to System Summary Only selected. Then click NEXT, you can leave HTML selected and click FINISH. The report will then be generated and a new window will appear. In this new window that appears, click SAVE TO FILE and save the report as REPORT.HTM somewhere on your computer where you will remember its location. Please attach this file to your reply.
