I setup win2000 server, MS loopback network card.

------------------------
1.My computer is workgroup
I setup win2000 server, but I only go to workgroup. And when I click on workgroup, my computer show message "The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available" and when I use "net view", my computer show message "Error 6118".

or
2. My computer is domain
When I click on domain, it is empty and when I use "net view", my computer show message (I don't remember exactly) "The entries is empty".

----------------------
In both of cases, if I search for computer name then I found and can access.

-And what exactly is the point ? You dont even have a network card... Try puting in a real network card & then worry about accessing network resources.

-->Try puting in a real network card
& then worry about accessing network resources.
..I haven't real network card. But I think this error is not for network card.

euh.. no network card....no network....makes sense to me...

at times networking can be complex enough with the proper equipment, don't complicate things by trying stuff without even the most basic components...

my advice: get at least one network card

sorry bout this , but networks do need network cards...
in the same way that pc's do need RAM and a CPU

lqmt M$ does not provide the loopback adaptor to study networking.. M$ provides it because there is no way to complete an installation of NT without a network card. They make no claims of any networking related tools with a loopback adaptor..

-Here's an example of why you'd install one..
-You have a NIC that can only install with a certain service pack revision... You complete the install with the loopback. Install the service pack & then install the NIC.

and even then this is a really rare situation which only happens with really non popular hardware, if you would use normal nics like intel's or 3com's , you would never have to do anything like this

svdamme definatly. The service pack revision issue was a problem that existed mostly on NT4, but I'm sure would still apply on a couple of very current NIC models.
-Correction: What I meant to say before way "They make no claims of any networking related tools FUNCTIONING with a loopback adaptor installed exclusivly..

You do need a network card to access  a workgroup or domain network.  The list of servers isnt avalible because you have no other computers on the "network".  A loopback adapter just send packets from the sending computer back to the sending computer, they go nowhere, just allows localhost to function.
