I checked, V3 wants 386 or higher.... ok, I have a box for that.

I do have win 3.0 and 3.1 with 286 support in hand those I have lanman
and windows networking support.

FYI: the NT4 Server disks have client drivers and networking support for
DOS, WIN3.x, OS/2 and w9x. Lanman and TCP/ip.

Disk is not problem as I have a 120 mb drive, enough for this use.

No plan to run OS/2-v1.3 don't have it either.

It does if you have the bonus pak. I also have the NT4 clients kit for OS/2

I'd still like to bump it up to 2MB if possible.
