[AMRadio] off topic question

Tom,

   In years back, I used to use DOS Interlink and DOS interserv with a home made cable connected from one computer to another via the parallel ports. I was able to set up a new computer with DOS, and Later Win95 by exchanging files through that cable with a dos shell at each end. To pull this off, both computers need to be in a dos shell, and the one with the CD needs to have the dos drivers to run the CD. The following link has the downloads, and text file instructions for the above commands.

http://oldfiles.org.uk/powerload/msdos.htm

also at the dos shell prompt, type HELP and look at the definitions. I recall there is a cable pin out in there two.

It might be easier to find an old CD Rom drive (like a 2x or 4x) and temporarily install that in your Win-95 computer.

Good Luck!
Jim

This may not be helpfull, but,   do you have a machine w/ a cd drive? 
Or know someone that does? You could have the machines 'networked'to 
each other, or they could copy your cd to disk..   klc
