Need Help With Virtual PC

I'm running VPC on Mac Mini with Windows 2k. I've not been able to open Internet Explorer.

I tried to connect using shared networking, when I turned VPC to shared networking I got the following message: When using Shared Networking, DHCP is required on your PC. In order to share the Mac's TCP/IP address you must change the emulated operating system's TCP/IP setting to use DHCP to configure its TCP/IP address.

Not sure what this means. What is DHCP and how do I set it on the PC? If I do this, should Windows then share the IP address of my Mac and allow me to use IE? What other steps must I take to use IE?

Thanks in advance

If IE is the reason to use VPC there is no need to go through that stress of using VPC and configuring the windows system to take you macs IP address because IE is also available on the mac and is faster then running it on a VPC system. It is in the Applications folder, or you can download it on microsoft.com

I just need the VPC to recognize my mac's IP address?

not to use IE on the mac, but if that is what you want to do...

Start>Controll Pannel> Network> TCP/IP >Enable DHCP
or something simular.
