    That often happens when you start doing networking on a machine that didn't have it before.

    Who installed the Win2K? Ask him what username/password was set.

    Need more info, John - what settings were changed ? Are you on a domain ? What flavour of Windows2000 are you on (poss irrelevant, but handy to know) ? Info is key.

    Is this thread a good argument for A+/ N+ before CCNA ?

    The more you can let us know, the more we can help :)

    This seems to me like a good time to try the LKG (last known good) option in the troubleshooting start up options screen. Press F8 just after the POST.

    LKG only works if you haven't been able to log in, which is the case here.
