Found that, in fact I think the archive I got contains drivers for a lot of
other OS's as well.

The card emulated is the "S3 Trio32/64" with either 4MB, 8MB, or 12MB (or is
it 16MB?).

I went digging first thing this morning, and found my copy of WFW3.11, as a
result I've go that installed now, along with the S3 driver and DEC 21041
NIC driver.

I'll go hunting for TCP/IP drivers tonight if I have time. I have a box of
PC/TCP that was sealed when I got it :^) and I've never used it. I'll have
to take a look at it, not sure what OS it supports.

Though I really should spend the time trying to get Win95 as it looks like
that is the OS I need to be running for some DEC software I have.

DOS itself is most interesting for some of my old games :^) Though so far
I've not had any luck getting Warlords 2, the only one I've tried, running.
