You have two options:

1, Use serial cables and the LOOP configuration. You can find the
description on the CT homepage.

2, Use PCMCIA Ethernet cards and K1TTT's network driver. It's very neat and
works robust. However you may find it difficult to get DOS drivers for the
latest devices.  I used both the Xircom 10/100 cards and the 3COM 10 Mb
card. They were OK.

DL6RAI has a very nice writeup of the NETTSR driver and it's setup with
different network adatpers. You can find it at www.Bavarian-Contest-Club.de
