My hard drive has a big red X on it and the Primary ide contoller (dual fifo) has a yellow flag. The disk is present and the system appears to be working ok. Except I can't get onto my network. This may be causing a problem with my network card. Please help.

Sounds like the controller isn't isntalled properly. If its an integrated controller (on motherboard) try reinstalling your chipset drivers. Give us more info on your hardware, ie brand of mobo & chipset, brand and model of hdd, maybe model and brand of your computer.

Was it always like this? Is the hard drive with the X a recent addition to the system? What O/S is running? Why do you think this has an impact on your network functionality?
