Networking FreeDOS - Installation

The majority of TCP/IP applications for DOS uses the packet driver interface. So to be able to run them, we need to install the appropriate drivers first. To install a generic packet driver is the simplest way. But it isn't always possible, as modern network cards often only come with ODI- and NDIS drivers. Anyway: ODI- or NDIS drivers can also be used as packet drivers through special converters ("shims"). This is just a bit more complicated. The following chapters describe where to obtain drivers and converters and how to configure them: * [Packet driver installation] * [ODI driver installation] * [NDIS driver installation] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Copyright (C) 2007 Ulrich Hansen, Mainz (Germany), modified 2010 by W.Spiegl.
