NT Dial up and LAN configs

I am so sick of rebooting 20 times each time I join a LAN, can someone help me with my config.
I need 2 separate dial up accounts to co-habitate with an IPX and TCP/IP LAN connection.  Fairly standard setup so why is it causing so much hassle. It seems that the only way I can get one to work is by removing the other, then I have to reinstall it later. How can I get SP5 extracted into the /i386 folder. I thought I did this with SP4 somehow.  Hopefully 2000 will be better, and will it support DirectX ?

Let's say Win2K has improved.. dialup networking, works almost immediately, rebooting after specific changes has been reduced (you still need to in some cases!). Extracting your servicepack can simply be done using Winzip!
Oh, Win2K does have support for DirectX7 (Currently Win2K Release Candidate2 has support for DirectX7BETA, i even managed to install support for a voodoo3D card and games like Turok2 fly!)
Plug&Play siupport is still a real b*tch... Should be disabled by default...
