windows 2000 NIC

Hi
I setup IP address for my nic in my win2k server. When I
changed PCI slot for NIC, it comes up with another NIC,
and I cann't assign the same IP address on it. Also 'Local
Area Connection' disappeared instead of having 'Local Area
Connection 2'.
Can someboby help me to work it out.

Thanks
Terry

Open Device Manager, click View, Show Hidden devices, and remove both adapters.  Then rescan for hardware changes.  You should be able to assign any address you want at that point
