The Network Setting

Windows allows for two types of network settings, Typical and Custom, which are described in the following table.
Setting Description
Typical Installs Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, and Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
Custom Creates custom network connections: for example, configuring a static IP address, configuring the computer as a WINS client, or adding NetBIOS Enhanced User Interface (NetBEUI).
You should also choose the Custom option if you need to configure the Windows computer to be a client or gateway to a Novell NetWare server.
