Can't find DHCP Server

By doubled ·
I'm having trouble getting a new computer on my network. I'm replacing a old computer with a new one and I can't get the new computer to see the DHCP server. I'm running a Windows NT 4.0 network with Win 98 clients. If I plug the new machine in to the network I get redirector errors on my PDC(which is not my DHCP Server)and my network slows down. When I plug the old machine in everything goes back to normal. I have tried the nic card from the new machine in the old machine and it works fine. Please help if anyone has any ideas.

Thanks

So, what else could be difernt, What is the OS on the old machine and what is the one on the NEW. You ma also want to look and see what protocols are installed on the old one and make sure You only have these on the New one.
Making sure (of course)that you have selected obtain an IP address automaticly.

Let me know if that does not work...

You may also want to take a look at the identification tab in the network properties. Make sure that the workgroup has the same name as your nt domain
