For anyone who hasn't found it yet, WinWorld is an amazing resource for DOS and
Windows 3.x/9x software and utilities. They do have a daily download limit, but it's difficult to actually use it all up. The number of software packages they have is incredible. Once you get CDROM up and running, you can do an ad-hoc VISO with VirtualBox to quickly transfer files back and forth. This is a
great feature and makes file management super easy.
I need to find a TCP/IP stack and software to use it,
so I can play around with the internet on there.
For virtual dial-up emulation, the Internet Explorer 3 provides both dialer and TCP/IP stack as well. I have used this within DOSBox (since it provides modem emulation, but you need slirp/pppd as well) and Netscape 4. Worked just fine, but requires PPP.
Man... Netscape 4: there's a wave a nostalgia waiting for me there, if I can get to it. I remember using Netscape back in the Internet days, but with Windows 95.
I suspect many sites won't work in Netscape 4 now, but I have to wonder
if archive.org would work, and just dig up some old sites.
