    Shawn, not sure if this will help you folks, but here is how I installed the modem to my Windows 2000 machine. Image 1 shows my device manager, and the installed modem. As you can see it is good for go. I installed it as USB so as not to screw up my network. We have found running dual network cards at Riggs really sucks. 

    Image 2 shows the modem with the PC light good for go.

    Image 3 is exploring the CD to the Y2K directory, which is where you will point the computer to when it asks for the drivers.

    Image 4 is the contents of the Y2K folder. You should not have to drill in this far.

    I can only venture a guess at the problems you may have experienced on other machines. I did notice the Starband software really gets shitty on the install if the dish is not hooked up. And it will toast the dialup stuff, IE and cause a blue screen of death.

    My thoughts on this is that the Starband software is trying to communicate to early in the install. Hopefully with the Dish tuned in, and using my technique on getting the modem installed this break will not happen. After Dish and Modem are installed, then run the automated setup from the CD. 

    I will be more than willing to work with the Tech on perfecting a good clean install technique. Plus, your Tech can show me a thing or two. I also have two friends at work who are interested, so I am the Lab Rat :) I work in the Computer Department at J. A. Riggs Tractor, we have fourteen servers NT and Win2000 and 500+ PC's. So I can say that I have been around the block once or twice with these critters.
