MS Client 3.0 (available on the WinNT Server CDROM, and by ftp from
Microsoft) includes TCP/IP.  When you install it, the setup program
allows you to 'Add Protocol'; select TCP/IP.  

I also then routinely edit the PROTOCOL.INI and AUTOEXEC.BAT files to
remove IPX protocol and its associated programs to save space...
