    cant mind off hand what errors i got - but were along the lines of USERENV's and errors relating to GPO settings being aborted when trying to be processed.

    Rolling back to MS's version (2001 IIRC) does help but not guaranteed.

    well you could get the eBay cards, I am tempted for if I am ever so lucky to come across these SIS cards. As I always build PCs from the parts and spec them well, I never use SIS boards ever as they have never been wonderful.

    ok go here :

    http://www.sis.com/download/

    click on windows xp or whatever platform ( I am assuming windows xp ) and then select network driver and then the sis 900

    download the zip and install it :

    if you need more help let me know ( We have some sis 900's at the place I work at )

    no issues with any gp updates or any of that

    My advise - if its a SIS900 - get a new NIC!!
    Incidentally, we had PXE boot compatibity issues as well with the SIS900. My supplier was able to get a BIOS firmware update that made the SIS900 PXE compliant. I'm at home at moment so couldn't give you specifics but I do know the motherboard is a foxconn. Respond if you want further details. I agree that the SIS900 isn't the best NIC in the world but if you can make it do PXE-boot, you might save some cash?
