how to config multiple tcp/ip protocols

By JOGO ·
I have a peer to peer network,10 PCs running win98/win2kpro, have a cable modem and router with TCP/IP configured to obtain an IP address automatically to enable all PCs to access the internet, NETBEUI is currently handling my LAN.
I want to set up a WIN2K server (file server)
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO??? INSTALL 2 NETWORK CARDS ON EACH PC?? CAN I ADD ANOTHER TCP/IP PROTOCOL BOUND TO THE SAME NIC??? HOW???
AM I GAINING ANY PERFORMANCE BY GOING TO A "SERVER MODEL"?? PLEASE HELP!!!

how to config multiple tcp/ip protocols

Your "server" does not need 2 NICs. Neither do your workstations. Just set it up like any of your other PCs, and plug it into your switch/hub.

You should have TCP/IP running already on your LAN. If you don't, just add it in to each of the systems. Go into each Network Control Panel, and check the Bindings: move TCP/IP up to the top. In many cases, you can use your router as a DHCP server, if you need one. Or you can use fixed IP addresses.

If possible, dump NetBEUI, and just run netBIOS over TCP/IP.
