hi i recently got in the mood of playing dungeon keeper 1. unfortunately it uses IPX protocol. now im not a networking expert, but i installed IPX protocol in the networking properties and it still doesnt work. the game says that it cannot innitiate the IPX protocol. my best guess is that it cant find it. alot of tother games such as doom II doesnt find the prptocol either. can anyone give me a quick troubleshoot of what im doing wrong?

btw, i do have TCP/TP installed along with file and printer sharing and internet connection sharing as well. i used the wizard. im running on windows XP pro and i have a P2P network with 2 other computers. please contact me with any suggestions. thanks.
