Network Configuration Wizard doesn't work for a laptop.  
I click on the SBS 2003 R2 Intranet link "Network Configuration Wizard". It shows a Network Configuration page where I click on "Connect to the network now". It show a page with the same Network configuration banner which simple has a text message: "Run the wizard to complete networking setup"

I've seen this before and disabled the wireless card (and bluetooth), but that doesn't help this time.

Other details:
Laptop is new install of XP Pro SP2 on Dell M70.
Using IE6 with HTTP:// to access Intranet (not NetBIOS name).
Have successfully joined this laptop before OS reinstall but now this laptop has a new NetBIOS name.
