1. The NetBEUI drivers should be on the NT CD. They are copyrighted.
2. There are three ways to access the Internet from the Win 95 computers:
Internet sharing software such as SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm). You will need two Network adapters in the computer running the SyGate host, one for the network and one for the DSL box.. I would suggest putting them in the NT server.
An external router. SMC Barricade (http://www.smc.com/smc/pages_html/homef.html) works well on my network. I like it better than SyGate, but it costs more. I will publish a review on the SMC Barricade in the near future.
Obtain more IP addresses from your service provider. In the long run this will probably cost you more than the other alternatives. Also, be sure to check your service providerís policy on Internet sharing. You will have to decide whether or not to implement sharing based on the policy, etc. or ordering more IP addresses. You probably will not need a second network adapter for this arrangement.
You will need to install the TCP/IP protocol on all machines connecting to the Internet. See http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se_cab/intro.htm. Sharing a DSL connection is similar to sharing a cable MODEM connection. You can run both NetBEUI and the TCP/IP on the same adapter. Larry
