Hey,

I'm having trouble with my Win95-WinNT two computer network.
I've been getting this message in the event viewer (source BROWSER):

The browser has forced an election on network \Device\NetBT_RTL80294 because a master browser was stopped.

Then I'll get SVR errors:
The server has encountered a network error.

The network card is a Realtek RTL8029.  I've got a dual boot
Win95/WinNT on one computer.  Win95-Win95 works fine, but
neither computer sees each other when the computer is set up
with WinNT.  I think if I can solve the BROWSER problem, setting up the network will be much easier.

Thanks,
J.W.
