Thread: 486 Sewing Machine

    Funny, I have what seems to be the regular ISA version of the same NIC. It came in a Dolch PAC 64 network analyzer, which had another card from Network General as well.

    Perhaps it is the exact same card and I mistook the card in the OP's machine for EISA due to the slot it's in.

    Whoa, DUDE!

    That computer is CRAZY hard to find! (About as hard to find as the Toshiba T3200SXC.)

    Nice find, though!

    I do like the fact that you're calling it a sewing machine computer. XD
    I call my Compaq Portable III a microwave computer.

    krebizfan: So I think the reason why I could not unzip the split file was because I was trying to use a self unzipping executable. I just now split the tile into two zip files (1 .zip and 1 .z01), but I cannot figure out how to recombine them. I tried just pkunzip on the .zip, but it came back with a bunch of errors. Is there a special command for this? Any ideas?

    mR_Slug: Thanks a bunch for the EISA drivers, I don't think I would have ever found them otherwise. You can change the line at the top of the page to indicate "of interest to ~6 people" now.

    MrArgent: USB to serial, interesting idea. I'll keep it in mind if the other solutions don't work.

    Mad-Mike: Thanks for the info on the system. I was able to find SP1368 and SP1234 on the HP website, but SP3068 does not appear to be available there. Is SP3068 necessary? When I unsuccessfully ran SP1368 in DOSBox, it asked for 3 disks to install on. Is there supposed to be more than 3 disks?

    kishy: Looks like we do have the same NIC. I just assumed it was EISA because of the slot it was in, I suppose it could be a 16 bit ISA card. I only just realized today that 16 bit ISA cards fit into the same slots as EISA. I picked up a Creative Vibra 16 sound card at my local e-waste recycler and it fits in the EISA slot perfectly.
