I have Windows XP Pro with Gigabyte MB with 1 gig of ram with
dual bios. When I go to start-run-ipconfig the window opens
for about 1 second and disappears. I can't ping. Any help
much appreciated. By the way I heard a rumor that Longhorn
is coming out in March or April. Is this true ?

Do you have any sort of network adapter installed and configured?
(And, just out of curiosity, what's a "dual BIOS?" I'm not familiar
with the term.)

Running IPCONFIG from the Start > Run dialog box _should_ open and
close the CLI (Command Line Interface)in such a manner. To properly see
the results of IPCONFIG, it needs to be initiated from within the CLI.

command prompt of the CLI window, type "IPCONFIG /?," and press <Enter>.
Omit the quote marks ( " ) when typing the commands.

Bruce it beats the heck out of me what dual bios is. It was
on the box when I bought the MB. I build all of my on computers and just buy
the best MB's I can find, which are
usually Gigabytes. Thanks for the info on cmd

Yes I have a D-link broadband router with 3 computers on my
home network. I tried to ping microsoft.com using cmd and it
says 4 packets sent 4 packets lost. However I am on the net with this
computer so the router shouldn't be a problem should it ?

ok, nevermind. I can ping www.yahoo.com so I am happy.
still can't ping microsoft though. Maybe they don't want
to be bothered at this time. Thanks for the info. Anyone
know about the Longhorn ?

A great many companies have set their servers to ignore ICMP (ping)
requests, as such are often used to launch crude DoS (Denial of Service)
attacks.

That 'may' be near the release date of the first beta version.

Point of clarification: their firewalls, not their servers, are dropping
(ignoring) the ICMP requests.

You're correct, of course. My bad. Thanks for correcting my
"imprecise" choice of wording.

Backup BIOS on the motherboard. If the main one gets corrupted (e.g.
flashing with the wrong file) it will boot from the secondary BIOS allowing
the main BIOS to be reflashed or copied from the secondary.
