Nope, I used the "Microsoft Network Client 3", which comes as a couple
of DOS disks. I seem to remember having to update one of the files,
and add a driver from a 3Com disk. Even so, it only took an hour or so
to download and set up, including at least one false start, and some
messing with HIMEM. I spent maybe an hour more messing with things to
save as much space as possible. If anybody wants to try it, I
bookmarked the webpage I found most helpful:

IPX/SPX are banned from my networks, so obviously I only installed the
TCP/IP stuff.
