    OS/2 2.1 was still fairly buggy. Warp 3 fixed most of the bugs. Warp 4 took Warp 3 and added speech recognition and networking. Warp 3 is probably the way to go.

    http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-browse.php?...atches/fixpack should lead you to the appropriate patches.
    Thank you for this link; I followed it and downloaded fixes and some information on installation.

    I installed what I could of the bonus pack: TCP/IP and System Information installed as did some multimedia applications; IBM Works did not. The installation wasn't too specific about what caused the exception, alas. Maybe FixPak 42 or 43 will address those issues.

    IIRC TCP/IP on straight Warp is for dailup only. You'll need the Warp Connect or Warp Server Clients to do normal networking.
    Dailup should'nt be installed if the clients are installed. Causes hiccups. https://www.os2world.com/wiki/index....P/IP_on_Warp_3

    Winworld has both Blue spine and Red spine Connect versions. https://winworldpc.com/product/os-2-3x/os-2-30

    IBM Works should be able to be installed ok from its own folder.

    Good to see you are progressing well.

    Another program I have on my v3 box is PMIRC, a fairly basic irc client. I use it to visit #vc on slashnet.
