This article describes how to install the NetBEUI protocol

on a Windows XP-based computer. This may be useful because

the NetBEUI protocol is not included in the list of

installable protocols in Windows XP even though the

files that are needed to install the protocol are included

with the installation CD-ROM. It is important to note that

the NetBEUI protocol is not supported on Windows XP.

The Netnbf.inf and Nbf.sys files are the files that are

needed to install the NetBEUI protocol. To install the

NetBEUI protocol:

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network


2. Right-click the adapter you want to add NetBEUI to, and then

click Properties.

3. On the General tab, click Install.

4. Click Protocol, and then click Add.

5. Click Have Disk, insert your Windows XP CD-ROM, open the

Valueadd\msft\net\netbeui folder, click the Netnbf.inf file, and

then click Open.

6. Click OK, and then click OK to complete the installation.
