My installation of a trial version of SQL Server failed because of my computer refusing to allow me to install whats  called a loopback adapter. I get a "Failed to Migrate from Winsock 1.1 to 2.0 " error message. I am trying to install the adapter from my Windows NT Workstation CD which shipped with VB 5.0. Any suggestions?

Have you set your FTP address correctly?  In order to "Loop Back" your FTP address needs to be set to use the IP address 127.0.0.1. This address is known as the loopback address for your computer. The loopback address uses loopback drivers to reroute outgoing packets back to the source computer. By going through the loopback drivers, the packets can bypass the network adapter card completely and be returned directly to the computer that is performing the test.

Fundamental doubt.  Have you installed TCP/IP on the machine?  Test it out by typing this at the command prompt

ping 127.0.0.1

If it doesn't go thru, try installing TCP/IP services

You do not need IP at all to operate either the MS Loopback adapter or SQL Workstation. I do not know, however, whether the install procedure is flexible enough to put just IPX in.
