1.  i would use a switch and not a hub
2.  if you are going to use a HUB im sure the speed/dupblex is set to auto so make sure the NIC on the new server is set to auto as well.  If that doesn't work, try 10/full, 100/full, 10/half and 100/half.

also, can you explain exactly what the problem is?  it really isn't clear from your post.

Try changing the cable--if cable is good then
Try changing the port on the hub--

Do you get link light on the hub and/or the NIC of the server?

Yes Thanks you.

I add a server 2000 to a domain with a DC windows 2000. this server should be a member server on the domain. efter the installation of this new server I would like to conect hte server to the domain in order to join it but on the network card adapter it is showing that the cable is unpluged while it is. I have checked the cable and it is working good I will change the network card to se if there is something wrong with the card but before do that I would like to see if there could be a roblem windows wise.

other than setting the link/speed and installing the correct driver there really isn't anything in windows to do.  That cable unpluged error is usually a physcial issue.
