we have a sql server connected to our network, but only one computer accesses it. There is a lot of traffic on this network so we were thinking of moving the sql server off the network and directly connecting it to the computer that uses it by installing another card in it and using a crossover cable.

How should we set up the new network card?
should I use a 192.168.0.1 for the sql server and 192.168.0.2 for the new network card? If I do that only those 2 cards that are connected can see eachother right?

do I have to mess with the routing tables?

this is NT 4 computers

The 192 addresses should work fine and there shouldn't be any route additions necessary.  How does the client talk to SQL?  via ODBC?  Named Pipe?

Neither is "best".  Named pipes just requires a particular kind of RPC session.  ODBC is pretty much standard.

Why not buy a switch? Without knowing anything about your network I can't say for sure, but it might improve things for all.

Good luck.
