I did find a driver set for 3Com model 3C905C-TX (1999) if it is of any use.
For setting up a jumperless NIC in a DOS environment, you need a batch file to configure it.

3C905 is PCI, 3C509 is ISA. I already gave the link to the EtherDisk for the ISA model, it include the setting utility and drivers for all OSs that were out there at the time. 3COM was doing a decent job for supporting their stuff for some time.

I'll go hunting for VG-365 cards and drivers then.

Yeah, OOPS! My fingers did their own dance and reversed the numbers!
Driver Guide does have a set. http://www.driverguide.com/driver/detai ... verid=6287

I already provided a set of driver disks including the utility before.

Hi guys,
I've already got my LAN working under DOS long ago as per 1st link, thank you so much!
The q. is now about this PCMCIA reader, only.

And another question pls...was there any good DOS-based TSR that will allow me to make screenshots (in different video modes, incl. VGA/SVGA)? As far as I recalling those imes, there was a cool "grab.exe"+"grabview.exe" screenshoter+viewer, but I can't find any correct mention on Internet so far...

Finding a screen capture utility for pure DOS may not be easy. Did find a link for some DOS utilities.. http://www.pc-tools.net/dos/dosutils/ and took a DL of same, scanned with AVG and is safe. But, use with proper command parsing!
You might be interested in a file manager for DOS. An older program, Norton Utilities, worked well in the DOS environment.
If you get Win 3.1 or 3.11 installed and working, look at "Total Commander" from http://www.ghisler.com/ . Similar, but not intended for a pure DOS environment.
You could use an optical disk drive in the DOS environment, but two commands are needed. One is the MSCDEX.EXE in the DOS folder, and the optical disk activator.. like VIDE-CDD.SYS or similar.

volkov commander is freeware and will run on basically everything.

screen grabbers for DOS, if memory serves me right you need to make sure you video chip is supported. so see if you can find the utilities disk for your video card, it might include one.

Hi,

just a screen grabber for DOS I need. :)
For file manager, I love that classic NC (+NU tools in additional). VC is smaller and faster - but lack of built-in tools that NC has.

Norton Commander was a great file manager! You could even use it for entering command lines for programs, sort of a 'menu' feature.
If only doing text capture, try the Ctrl+Print Screen key combo. Should output to almost any printer.
For image capture, maybe use a digital camera, off-axis by about 10° to avoid glare and flash washout.
I have an archive of the ancient DOS stuff.. but no screen capture found there.
DOS 6.22 was the last official release of a pure command-prompt system. But pulling the commands from a Win 95 or Win 98 install would work nicely.
Default video for VGA in DOS is 640x480 @60 Hz unless the video card has 1 MB or higher.
