I was installing Solaris 10 under VMware and it stopped during installation. As a result, I cannot view network properties on XP, I tried removing the network card and re-installing it but the system will not re-load the driver. I had system restore turned off and cannot turn it back on. Some programs will run but others will not. I cannot uninstall programs either. Any ideas? I tried to re-install XP but I am running SP2 and my install disk is the original XP and it will not let me re-install because of the lower level.

I assumed that. It was just the las thing I was doing to the OS before thingd went into the dumper. Something clobbered a file somewhere and I would like to fix it instead of doing a re-load. I can boot up another WinXP on this machine and restore the file(s) if I knew what they were. It will not let me make any changes to the system, like add drivers, or look at the network. I tried refreshing the TCP/IP stack, but the network files do not seem to be there.
