Unusual request.

From: Tom WIlson 
------------------------------------------------------
I'm starting a seriously misguided, technically challenging and wholly 
ridiculous legacy software project.

I could do it on a VM but am really wanting to do it on actual hardware. 
Have a Nexar tower (KLAMATH 233 MMX) and a Pentium S 75 both on the 
on-deck circle.

I am needing a functional 10MB ISA-16 or PCI ethernet adaptor with 
MS-DOS drivers. (RJ 45 otherwise I'd have to come back to the list and 
beg for a BNC hub, thinnet, terminating resistors, etc)

Will pay.

*fingers crossed*

=============================================================== From: Joe Freeman ------------------------------------------------------ I might have the card, but good luck on the drivers.

=============================================================== From: Tom WIlson ------------------------------------------------------ Unfortunately, I have a mountain of cards with no drivers and another mountain of driver disks with no card. Just found a CNET PCI card what's box claimed a DOS ODI driver. Box lied. From the looks of things, I'll have a more difficult time building the machine than writing the code. About to reconsider my no VM policy.

=============================================================== From: DaWorm ------------------------------------------------------ I may have a 10baseT hub with a BNC port on it as well. I'd have to dig through boxes to find them. As for driver disks, most are still available online with a bit of searching. Here's one good spot: http://www.dreamlandbbs.com/drivers/netwerk/ Jeff.

=============================================================== From: Joe Freeman ------------------------------------------------------ The one I have handy is an IBM 10/100 TX PCI card. It has intel chips on it, but I have no idea what drivers it will use.

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ I'm pretty sure I have some 3com 3c905 (or is it 3c509, hell I don't remember) cards, and some other cards... surely the drivers for the 3coms can't be hard to find on the internet... I just got home but I can go down to the dungeon and take inventory in a little while... --- On Mon, 5/20/13, Tom WIlson wrote:

=============================================================== From: "Alex Smith (K4RNT)" ------------------------------------------------------ Might I inquire what the project is?

=============================================================== From: Ed King ------------------------------------------------------ got some 3c509-tp and 3c509b-tpo cards, free if you swing by east ridge --- On Mon, 5/20/13, Tom WIlson wrote:

=============================================================== From: Tom Wilson ------------------------------------------------------ May just do that. I located pktdrv and ODI drivers for an aon325 which I think I have several of. If these don't work out, I know I can easily get what I need for 3COM adapters.

=============================================================== From: Tom Wilson ------------------------------------------------------ The biggest problem I have run into is a total dearth of PktDrv and ODI support. If I want Windows 9x/NT support, I am golden.

=============================================================== From: Tom Wilson ------------------------------------------------------ App.net client for MS-DOS. Stems from a conversation with the maintainer of TenFoxFour and texapp while attempting to get Strawberry Perl and CURL loaded into a Compaq LTE-5000. (Spectacular failure as CPAN broke the poor little guy's back) The more it was joked about, the more ideas of how to handle large JSON streams congealed in my head. It's the sort of ludicrous project that appeals to me.
