Right click the offending device in Device and select Remove.
Make sure beforehand you have the correct driver.
Re-boot and re-install the driver and you should be good to go...

    What is the motherboard and network adapter? Even better, download and run Everest Home, make a report and post the WHOLE THING here. We can get you going.   ;)

      You appear to be using dial up. If that is the case, not to worry about the ndis2 driver. It is for the ethernet adapter. Windows detects the the ethernet adapter and attempts to load drivers for it. A NIC cannot fully initialize unless it is connected. You can safely ignore it or disable it. If you decide to use broadband, it will need to be enabled and connected to the router or modem.
      If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

        One thing at a time. Do you know the EXACT model of your ATI card?

          Well, we know that is a GXa and ALL of the drivers you need are on the Dell site. Just choose the video driver from the Windows 98SE download area.
