If you have a Laplink Cable, you can use the Laplink Cable to connect
the Windows 95 system and the Linux system via PPP. My local computer
store sells "Laplink" cables, actually null-modem serial cables, for a
reasonable price, so maybe you can find them. Run Linux as the PPP
server and Windows as the PPP client. Start with the serial connection
at 9600 baud, and then see how fast you can go. You may be able to get
it working at 115,200.
I gatewayed my wife's Windows 95 system to the Internet via my Linux
system using a 30-foot serial cable and this scheme for a while. Then
I bought two thin-net cards.
