A better question, in my view..
>If I installed another NIC in my XP machine,

Could I then select which NIC to use with my Cablemodem?
Could I do it while NOT enabling any Server functions?

I want my machine to be as DUMB as I am.
For sure, I don't want it to know WHO I am.
But alas, I fear already knows.
Lot's of hanging, and blue screens, rebooting, and all.
