If you want to obtain the IP address automatically, you need to make sure the NT server is setup for DHCP.  It may not be.  Your pc is setup correctly, but it is possible in this case the server is not.

Otherwise, you should go ahead and put in all the IP address info, gateway, DNS, etc.  This info can be obtained by your Network Administrator.  

Try this and tell me more if it doesn't work...

Answer to question was good.  Although my problem was related to a hardware problem.  Couldn't find network card. The answer, though, led me in the right direction.
