Yes, the diskettes are for the drive, not the network software. And
for the drive, it worked fine quite a few years back, then sat for too
long. If you have any tips you'd like to share, I'd sure listen and
try them out. I'd love to get this thing going again. shoot me an
email if you want with where to send the diskettes and I'll get copies
off to you. Thanks, my friend!
