I am new to using Win NT.  NT detects a XT serial device, but has no drivers for it.  Where can I get drivers for this device and what is a XT Serial?

What is connected to your serial ports? sounds to me like an external serial device driver. mouse, apc, modem, could be a lot of thinks due to the nature of a beta os.

To me XT serial stands for external serial device.
Have you connected something external to your PC? Upgraded from win 9X? Find drivers form the specified device from supplier or MS. This is also the nature of using beta's not everything is in place yet. Try using beta 3 of windows 2000 for updated MS stuff.
