Why can't Windows 95 PC's see my PPC in their Network Neighbourhood, even though I can see them?
Why can't I create shares in Windows 95? I ahve file and print sharing installed but their is no "sharing" available in the properties menu.

There are 2 solutions to let win95 see a mac on the network.  Apple's appletalk client for windows and MacLan95.  win95 does not have support for appletalk, and therefore cannot see your machine on the network.

at my university i have ran into the same delimma.  if you are seeing windows machines on the network, most likely they are windows NT machines.  windows NT can share a folder over appletalk, but cannot mount your hard drive over appletalk.

regarding creating shared folders in win95, my understanding is that you simply right click on the folder in question and select "sharing."  you may get a more detailed explanation of this separate issue in the win95 networking section, bu think i have answered the first part for you.

So your syaing that the DOS compatibility card is not truly compatible because it doesn't do a fundamental operation in Windows 95 ie sharing. I wish I had known that before I bought it!
