I have only dealt with Network Analyst once or twice.  My goal is to create a shortest distance analysis between 2 points by road.  I am using the street network from the CD provided by ESRI.  My Network Analyst extension is active and I have an updated Geodatabase version.  I have created a file geodatabase with the feature classes I need.  When i right click on the Feature Dataset, the New Network Dataset option is grayed out.  I have also done the same thing with shapefiles and get the same result.  How do I get the New Network Dataset wizard started up?
