networking Vista and a Win95 machine
Is it possible to connect my Vista laptop with a Win95 computer on my
network? If so, what needs to be installed on the 95 machine, if anything?
Thanks much........
Clark

Clark,

It is vaguely possible, but considering the age of Windows 95, it's probably not
going to work well for you. There is one known show stopper which affects a lot
of Windows 98 computers. Anything running Windows 95 will probably be less
stable still.
