Re: Connecting Linux machine to Win.95\Linux Machine.
My suggestion would be to pony up for two 10-base-T ethernet cards and get a
crossover cable. You *could* network the two via serial, but I was unable to get
this to work in Win95 using the "Direct Cable Connection". You can get NE2000
compatible cards of reasonable quality for under $20, even in quantity 1. The
cable should run you ~$10 at a retail outlet. Look at Datacomm Warehouse (they
can probably ship int'l).
