Ack! *shudders at the memory*

Horrible things, we did a LOT of those back then initially on WFW3.11 then
Win95. I battled PATHWORKS32 and fun fun fun times with 10base2 around
police stations in the north of england.

Bound to still have driver disks at work, but the 3c905 was THE de-facto
card of the 90s for 10baseT with the DE100/DE200 (I think) for
thick/thinwire. The 3COMs will work with the bog-standard NE1000 driver for
DOS....hazy memories of swearing which I shall take to sleep since it's 2am
here :)
