Why did you configure it for TCP/IP? This could be causing the
problem. Do you have TCP/IP enabled for SQL Server? By default
is is NOT ENABLED on SQL Server (irrelevant on NT's TCP/IP settings).

If you can make a share connection to the SQL Server NT machine, then
Named Pipes should work fine for you. You may need to go into the
SQL Client Utilities and create an entry for your SQL Server, also.

This is just because it can't find the SQL Server.

Yeah, there are a LOT of applications that this can conflict with.

Use named pipes would be my first step.
