pls explain this....

i have a w2k pro box using ics to share internet, with a NT4 server. The NT4 is setup to obtain an ip from the ics...within the range of 192.168.0.*.
The other workstations on the network which have ip of 200.100.100.* cannot ping or see the NT4 while it has the ip 192.168.0.*, even though they have the same subnet mask
Im not very good in TCP\IP, can anyone explain to me why this is so. Are they on a different subnet or what..really confused.
how do i solve this problem...

200.100.100.* and 192.168.0.* are different networks. One cannot ping or communicate between different networks without a router connecting them. The network should not have a combination of static and dynamic IPs. Make them all automatic or all assigned. Use 192.168.0.* (,, etc. with for the ICS host computer) to comply with RFC (Request for Comments) 1918, Address Allocation for Private Internets, February 1996 (I am writing an article on this subject).
