Install the Windows 95 Network Driver
This guide provides instructions for installing the Windows 95 Network Driver.
All versions of Windows 95 might not respond with the same screens.
Therefore, windows that are different from those shown in these instructions
might open but prompt you for the same information, and windows might open
in a different order than the order of the steps in these instructions.
Note: You must install the network card (instructions on other side of
this guide) before installing the network driver.
You need to have the Windows 95 CD-ROM and the FA310TX Drivers and
Diagnostics Disk ready to use in the installation process.
If you have not yet named your PC and your network, before you proceed with
the installation steps, decide on a name for your network and for each PC. When
the “Network” window opens, it prompts you to “... provide computer and
workgroup names....” Click on “OK.” The second “Network” window opens
and prompts you for the names. Enter a name (a different one-word name for
each computer) in the “Computer name” entry field; enter a workgroup
name (the name of your entire network) in the “Workgroup” entry field.
Click on “OK” or “Close.”
Note: If the “Insert Disk” window opens and the “Please insert the
disk labeled Windows 95...” message appears at any time during the
installation process, insert the Windows 95 CD-ROM in Drive D (the
CD-ROM drive) and click on “OK.” Then follow the next step in the
instructions.
