    I have a no name network card with the same chip (UK0022). Somebody on this forum modified the latest crynwr ne2k packet driver to work on 8-bit slots.

    I still remember a program that listed MS-DOS 5.0 as a requisite. Actually the program worked fine with any DOS version > 3.0 but it used about 600KB or RAM so they assumed that anybody using a...

    I use FreeDOS on 486 PCs with good results. Everything I thrown at it but Windows 3.x works fine (win 3.x should work in standard mode but I did not have much luck with it). MS Network and LAN...

    I'm not aware of any software written specifically for a particular DOS version. The minimal DOS version requirement for a huge amount of software (including Windows 3.x - WfW requires 3.3, though)...

    Yes, you are absolutely right but, back at those pre MS-DOS 5.0 days, every single 386 I saw in the wild was a 386SX@16 (usually an Olivetti specimen). 386(DX) were really expensive and I started to...

    I try to use what I think are the "period" correct DOS versions on my systems

    * XT clones (8088/V20): PC/MS-DOS 3.2x and DR DOS 3.40
    * AT clones (286): PC/MS-DOS 3.3x and DR DOS 3.41

    The problem is that old AMI BIOSes returned to 1900 at 01/01/2000 00:01 This happens with ALL post-2000 leap years not only with 2000. I did not explain this very well ... :(

    they even tried to...

    It's the version of BASICA that came with IBM DOS 4.0. It should work fine too. But, as I said, there aren't many changes from version 3.30.

    I'm surprising that a 486 BIOS has this problem ... Leap year bug is common (2000 it's a leap year) but I have several 286, 386 and 486 (all with different AMI (flex/win)BIOSes) and none of them have...

    Try another (older) version of BASICA. IBM DOS 5.0 was released at a time IBM was phasing out ROM BASIC and the version of BASICA included with it and OS/2 (it's the same: 3.40) relies much less in...

    40Mhz VLB was anything but rare. This works fine as long as you use late chipsets and VLB cards. I have an UMC U5SX40 running with a Trident TGUI9400Cxi and a Promise DC4030 VLB cards and the system...

    I have a 386SX @ 40 Mhz running. Performance is in the range of a 386DX @ 25. Those boards where very late in the party and the 386 was really obsolete by then. Specs are, certainly, not 100% period...

    80ns is enough to run a 286 @ 12Mhz with 0 WS so anything faster than that is a waste. You can mix different speeds without problem. AFAIK most chipsets insert always at least 1WS for ISA memory...
