Got laptop which boots from windows 95 into DOS. Loads network drivers
etc. IP address is 10.1.99.7 (255.255.255.192) and gateway is
10.1.99.10.
10.1.99.10 is windows 2000 server with shares on.

From laptop 10.1.99.7 (255.255.255.192) I can ping 10.1.99.10.

However, if I do :-
NET USE \\PXE-SERVER\SHARE1
or NET USE \\10.1.99.10\SHARE1

I get ERROR 53-Computer name specified in the network path cannot be
found.

How can this be? I've specified an IP address?

This is really weird. I can ping the IP.

Net logon returns me a message that it isnt validated by server. Its
as if it cant even see the server to validate with or connect to.

Have a look at your similar post in the Win2000 newsgroup. I gave you some
background about this phenomenon.

I note that you now scatter your query on this subject over at least four
different newsgroup. This leads to duplication of effort, which tends to get
you unpopular with potential respondents. Best to cross-post all queries to
all four groups.
