Hi. I need some help. I am running a Simple TCP/IP PPP connection to
the Internet, using a modem on a PC running Windows NT 4.0 with
Service Pack 2.

I need to have a CPU ID on my machine to get a license to install
certain software. I understand that I can get a CPU ID by installing
an ethernet network card in my system.

So my question is: What do I need to do to configure my system with an
ethernet card, even though I am not connected to a network, so that I
get a CPU ID,and still connect to the Internet using the TCP/IP
protocol?

Thanks in advance.

Windows NT allows multiple physical network connections.  You can simply install an Ethernet card and not use it.  I surmise that you otherwise connect to the Internet using RAS.  RAS will operate separately from your (nonfunctioning) Ethernet card (Buy a cheap one!) <grin>
