    i've used some hours now to try to figure out why the TAP network card does not activate when coLinux start up. I have installed it with the same setup on another machine and there it works fine. Both runs W2K. On the problem machine the boot up says:

    auto selecting TAP
    Error opening registry key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E
    meTAP device not found

    Any suggestions is appreciated!

      Your error have nevre seen before.  Perhaps the TAP driver was not full installed?

      Go into menu start, control panel, select system, tabing hardware, button device manager and uninstall the tap driver (a network card).

      This is a german picture for these steps:

      Then use control panel, icon hardware install, don't search and select manual install from disk.  The drivers install directory is under colinux the directory netdriver.

      If that not helps, try to install an other version, for sample this:

      Try the manual install with control panal (see readme in zip) or the command line install.
