Hey classic OS users.
  A friend recently gave me an old Pentium 120 with 20MB of ram, and
200MB HD. It also has an Intel EtherExpress PRO/10+ ISA LAN adapter.
So I decided I would take this system and install Dr. Dos 7.03, and
WFW 3.11. However I don't have any clue how to access my home network
with this type of setup. My home network has a D-Link router that
plugs into my DSL modem and faithfully serves Windows XP, WIN ME, and
OS X. Why do I want to use 3.11? Well, remind me of the old days when
I used it to dial up onto the net, and play games that XP won't let
me. Anyways, what do I need to do to get the job done?
Is DR Dos a good dos? Or should I dig up MS-6.22 or maybe PC-Dos 2000?
Which browser should I hunt down and install? IE 5 or Netscape?
Anything else I should know?

Thanks for your help!
