My computer should have:

1x Dynamic IP (DHCP) from the ISP.
1x Static IP for the LAN (192.168.x.x)
ON THE SAME CARD AT THE SAME TIME

Does anyone know how this can be done?

I'm sure that the question "Why?" will show up, so I'll answer it right now. I have several machines in my home. I only want two of them to access the internet directly. One being this computer (WinXP Pro SP2), the other being a linux box. The rest of the machines use only LAN-IPs and connect out through the linuxbox.

The XP and Linux machines take an IP each from the ISP's DHCP server and should also have one local IP for the local traffic. On linux, this is not a problem. It was solved after 5 minutes of googling. On XP however, it's a bit more tricky, namely impossible as it seems now. Please prove me wrong, show me that it can be done.

Create a "Network Bridge". Where the computer on ur LAN that has access to the internet is the bridge.

Not quite what I want. I want two IPs on one NIC, not bridging two NICs.

You might want to invest in a router. The router can have a dynamic IP on the web while the individual machines can have static or dynamc IPs as you choose.

Yes, that would be possible, but not give the result I want. One machine should be on the outside and inside of the network but still not be or use the gateway for the other machines.
