I'm not even sure this can be done.

I had to reinstall the OS 4 times on one of my computers last night while trying to figure out a networking problem. Reconfiguring the network connection was a real pain because Windoze doesn't have any decent tools to help.
Some LAN cards have really nice install apps. They give you a lot more options, and let you know what is going on.

I would like to build something like that for Windoze boxes. For instance, it would be really nice if I had a way to directly edit the DHCP and DNS settings in Windoze. There may be versions of Windoze that have that capability, but I haven't seen it for a while.

I'm running two XP Pro boxes, one Win 7 Pro 32 bit, and a W2K Pro system. I would like to produce something that would help me with all of them.

Does anyone know if that is even possible? (I know. Not all Win 7 boxes use the same LAN cards.)

Any idea where I could even get started on this?. I've been programming with VB for about 10 years, but not this kind of programming.
