Problem is getting it onto my LAN and the Internet. Win 95 worked fine on
this notebook, slow but fine, and I'd like to see what OS/2 looks like on
the 'net.

if there is a fairly simple download or something that would let the
notebook see the LAN. The manual says something about needing a LAN server
and MPTS. Thanks!

Warp 3 didn't really have support for TCP/IP networking and internet (it can
connect from dialup modem) use unless you purchased warp 3 connect, warp 4
has internet connectivity via network built in. Either way your going to
need a few fixpacks after installing warp to get any newer software to
