Well, here's the history. My husband bought this Dell Dimension 4400 at Goodwill. We got it plugged in and turned it on and we got this as it was booting:
Portions Copyright© 2000 Symantec Corporation
3Com Etherlink PCI DOS NDIS driver v5.2.2
ERROR: Network adapter not found or not responding.
ERROR: Initialization failure. Driver will not be installed
Press any key to continue....

Mouse driver installed
Network initialization failed: the DOS-mode client cannot proceed
No packet driver present
Anyone know what the heck all that means?? I'm used to the computer just starting and going to windows. Seems to me like I don't have something to make it go anywhere. Do I need a GHOST disk to even get this thing to start? Can I get this GHOST off here? HELP!!! LOL!
Thanks for any advice.
