Join the “All Computer Social Network”! It’s a social network just for computer enthusiasts.

(Install a network so that you can transfer files from you main computer to the legacy PC, without putting them on a disk)

1.  Go to Main > Windows Setup

2.  Click Options > Change Network Settings

3.  Click Networks > Install Microsoft Windows Network

4.  Click Sharing > Check: I want to be able to give others access to my files.

5.  Click Drivers > Add Adapter

6.  At this point you can try clicking Detect.  If it finds your adapter, you may be asked to insert      a Windows disk for the driver, or it may already be installed in Windows.  If it is not      detected, or is not on the list of network cards, choose Unlisted or Updated Network Adapter.      It will then ask you for a driver disk.  You must have a driver disk with Windows 3.11 drivers      for your network card. Insert disk and click ok. (I am using a 3Com 3c905b-tx Fast Etherlink      card.  I found the drivers on www.driversguide.com)

7.  Now you must add the TCP/IP protocol.  Click > Add Protocol.  Click > Unlisted or Updated     Protocol.  Make a disk with the TCP/IP files I have included in the “Programs for installation     folder”.  Insert disk and click OK.  Select Microsoft TCP/IP 32.311b and click OK.  Now it will     appear in the network drivers list.  Click on it and choose Setup.

    (At this point you should go to your main computer and launch the command prompt.  Type     “ipconfig”.  Write down the IP address, the subset mask, and the default gateway.)

8.  In the TCP/IP configuration window type an IP address.  Enter the same IP address that's on     your Main PC, but change the last number, (Example: Your main PC has, put in your Legacy PC setup.)
