You need to find the winsock.dll file on your system (usually there are more than one in different directories for different apps, but generally you are interested with the one in c:\windows\system or c:\windows) and rename it something else first (like winsock.old).  THEN you can install the verison of winsock you desire.

Reboot for the changes to take effect.
that's all there is to it...

Okay, you have ay applications running that are using that DLL?  reboot in MSDOS mode and do it from there.

attrib -r -a -s -h (winsock filename)
rename (winsock filename) to (another name)

Reboot and install the 1.1 software.

Incidentally, changing the attribute to Read-only will not help.  REMOVE ALL ATTRIBUTES.  try it in Win95 again before rebooting to DOS mode.

In DOS, you might have use the -r -a -s -h switches after the filename.
