I've just attempted to install a Linksys wireless-G adapter into my IBM Thinkpad 600X running Windows 2000, service pack 4. When I attempt to edit the link profile it always comes back and says, "Failed to change device configuration".

What's up?

The problem was a conflict with a 3Com PCMCIA network card. Thanks,

in windows 2000, I believe that you still can change the IRQ / Resources in Device Manager > System Device or PCMCIA to avoid the conflict. So, change the IRQ or Resources of 3Com PCMCIA network card, and install again the Linksys card. Try see if it helps.
