We have three computers in our office and although we have no need for networking we would like the ability to access each others computer for file sharing. I understand Windows 95 has a built-in capicity for this but I don't have a clue as to how to go about setting this up. Directions?

Do the computers have network interface cards?  It would be easier if they do.

Just go to "Settings, Control Panel, Network" choose the appropriate network adapter.  Then add a protocol.  You can use both IPX and TCP/IP.  I recommend TCP/IP.

If you want to add a network interface card you can go to "Settings, Control Panel, Add new hardware".  Don't choose autodetect then choose Network Adapter.  Choose your appropriate adapter or click "have disk" if you have a driver disk.

I think that it is also possible using only direct COM port cable connections, but for me this is not really networking and you are making it harder.
