after dumping the info, you have to edit the file.. and reload it to your adapters on every bootup with isapnp .. The easiest way is to use a DOS boot floppy, use the disk that came with your network card, and disable PnP.

its calledwhatever you told the dump program to name it to. but that seems reasonable.. But i guarantee you that disabling pnp on the NIC is the fastest way to go, and also saves you having to load he networking as modules.
