I think the key, then, is to make a back-up copy of the entire Mac drive image as soon as something works. I am able to *seem* to get classic mac networking working, but I get a "broken pipe" error when I try to connect to another node on my network with Netscape. I have not been able to get networking working at all when Open Transport is enabled. The system hangs
when I try to turn on networking with the chooser. Please post a report if you get it working again.
