After a lot of head scratching, help & procrastination, here is what I hope, will be a helpful tutorials & guidance notes, to aid you the fellow user, in the beginners mystical art of networking!
Are you sitting comfortably in the correct posture, if not?
Here's what you should do!
1) Adjust your chair height so that your arms are approximately level when your fingers are on the keyboard.
2) Adjust your chair to afford maximum back support.
3) Position your monitor so that the top of the screen is no higher than eye-level, slightly tilted & approximately situated at an arms distance - centralise if possible in front of you!
4) If you work a lot from documents, use a document holder at the same height as your screen.
5) Use a wrist and /or footrest if they make you more comfortable.
6) Position your keyboard straight in front of you allowing enough room in front to rest hands when not keying.
7) Avoid strong light & glare - When you switch your monitor off and look at it can you refected glare? Adjust blinds and clean your screen.
8) Avoid unnecessary clutter around & under your desk.
9) Don't sit in the same position for long periods of time - take regular breaks from keying activities at least hourly.
10) Within a reachable safe distance set up your favourite beverage & maybe a chocolate biscuit or two or three or four.
Thats it, you are now ready to peruse the "Networking Tutorials"
Here is a checklist or breakdown of the title headings for the compositions. I have presented the tutorials in Pdf format because its easier to compile, tis easier on the eyes (for you to read), & you can print the document to a paper hard copy if you need any enclosed information for reference material? Good bedtime reading ZZZZZZ!
The two attachment Pdf files as follows:
1) NETWORKING.Pdf (15 pages long)
2) IS_NIC_OK.Pdf (3 pages long)
NETWORKING.Pdf is the main "Tutorial file" where all, the juice is!
IS_NIC_OK.Pdf is a complementary companion Pdf file entitled, "How to Verify That an Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) Driver Is Installed Properly in Windows XP"
The basic headings (or Index) within the NETWORKING.Pdf document are as follows:
1) What are NIC Drivers, the basics?
2) How can I find which files are attributed to my specific NIC drivers?
3) Network detection in regards to WinBuilder 
4) Wpeinit Command-Line Options (for VistaPE)
6) What's this myNIC program used for then (Author Peter Schlang [Psc] one very kewl individual?)
7) Is there a Generic alternative to PENetwork method?
8) The Driver Packs Method ("Shotgun Shampoo")
9) The Next variation we will call "Galapo's way"! (In Respect of LiveXP Project)?
10) Various Projects use a program called PE Network Configurator PENetCFG
11) More Universal Solutions
12) For VistaPE
Feed back, suggested improvements are always welcome!!!
& last but not Least "ENJOY"
I have been editing & tweaking the Networking tutorial to improve the navigation features within it.
The good news is you can now, from a front end contents menu, "jump to" any heading within the document & having once read the relevant paragraph chapter jump back to the Contents first page.
I have altered the layout, removed some typo's & repaired several broken URL web-page links that were broken! (NETWORKING.doc.gz)
The bad news is it is no longer in Pdf format as it is now a .doc. Why! Well when I try to convert the the doc to Pdf all the internal linking becomes broken? Now the more discerning amounst you are going say that unless you have MS Word installed on your PC this document is pretty useless!
However in antiscipation of this shortcoming can I suggest that you obtain a (freeware) program called "Word Viewer 2003" (11.7Mb Wdviewer.exe) that can be obtained from the following link:
With this program you can view the contents & also print it off if you so desire. Please follow the installation instructions provided on the web-site.
Hope you like it Enjoy?
Regards & Best Wishes,
