DSL Installation Problems under WIN2K

Hi.  I am having trouble establishing a network connection for my dsl.
1.  OS is WIN2K  2.  I have a laptop w/docking station, both with 3Com cards.  3.  RASPPPPOE installation won't take.  I need to configure a dsl connection for the internal card but can't find how to do it.  When in the docking station, I see two connections-the first is network area connection  LAN Unplugged.  The second is LAN Enabled.  Both connections have the same IP/DNS/WINS settings.  At home, out of the docking station and away from our work network, I was going to reconfigure connection one, wiping out the IP/DNS/WINS but a) I thought this would interfere with settings back at work and b) I don't have an IP for my ISP so I don't know what to do.  At home I have used my dsl with WIN XP's internal RASPPPOE and followed a ID protocol procedure, etc. but I don't see any way to do this in WIN2K.  Ideas?

Try plugging your DSL connection into your network card then click Start, Run and type cmd

Type:

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

You should then get an IP address dynamically assigned from your ISP.
