Get NETTSR and use it.  The instructions are in the package.

We've used it twice (WPX and CQWW98) and it never missed a beat.  Tinker with it long before the contest.  You will need a network card for each computer and a HUB if you are using 10BaseT connections.  If you only have 2 computers, then you can go without the HUB, but you need a special peer to peer cable.

If you use Coax for your network, then you don't need a Hub.

We can send you the autoexec.bat we just used for this one if you like.
