I have 4 systems and want to network them. I have several cards.
Card specs; 2 kingston cards, 3 SMC, 1 3com.
Systems; one is set up to multiboot, with 98, 2K, XP, and Server.
one is 98, one is 2K but may change it to xp. One is an old packard bell with 95 that may get 98 but maybe not.
The 95 system has a kingston card and it works. the 98 does not have a card and I want it to have one and not change the OS. The 2K has a card that I think works.
the multiboot; well, there's the issue. I put in the 3com card and 2K, xp, and server all found it and automatically installed it and it works. the thing is I want it to work in 98 also, or one of the SMC cards instead if I get the drivers.
I got drivers from the 3com site and unzipped to first, my drivers, and it didn't work; wizard said that location doesn't have a driver. So I unzipped it to system and that didn't work either, same result. What am I missing? I figure if I can make it work in this system I can make it work in the other 98only system and that's what I want, or at least learn the procedure so I can put in one of the SMC cards there. I hope this isn't too confusing, but the main question is what is it about 98 that takes special treatment? Anyone know of a site with step by step?
I've looked at some but they have only the standard info, and I don't have anything on a disc.
