By nic you refer to "Network Interface Card", right?

Well I figure the process is also somewhat self explanatory.. shut down the pc, pop the case open, put a nic in an open PCI slot, fire it up, enter the bios, disable the onboard lan (unless you want to use both of them).. Most nics have drivers in XP or Vista already so thats usually taken care of already..

It's too long, everyone keeps abreviating it to ATF so I figured I"d go for a shorter one, besides when I made it I was FAH (Folding At Home) for Stanford U but I got sick of that once I had clocked up 200K points and gave it up.

Change is as good as rest
