We are using a PC equipped with IBM Cyrix 486/50, VESA bus, Ethernet board 3com 3c509 and Windows 95. When we installed network software from Windows 95 setup we can not use floppy disk anymore. Any time we try to access a file in a floppy disk the computer crashes. It is not a problem of disk controller because we already tested 3 different controllers. If we start in DOS mode, the floppy disk drive works perfectly. Only when we are under Windows 95 with network software installed the problem appears. What can I modify in the setup to have both floppy disk and network working under Windows '95?

What IRQ did you set your network card to ?

The floppy drive has an IRQ of 6 generally, your network card should fit nicely at IRQ 10.

Have you checked for conflicts in Control Panel - System - Device Manager - Floppy Disk Controllers - Standard Floppy Disk Controller - Properties. If it says anything other than 'This device is working properly' or similar in the 'Device Status' panel then that is your problem.

To rectify the problem (if the above is the case) change the IRQ of the network card *not* the floppy drive (you can do this from the control panel). The other tab on the device manager screens is 'Resources' you change it there under the title of 'Interrupt Request'.

Of course you could have already tried all of this .....
