I want to add an additional host to TCP/IP so I can access to different ISP's.  I want to add both a second host and domain.  How can I do this?  Below I have included some information on my win95 machine and the setup.  Please, be as specific as possible.  Thank you advance.

Here is some additional information about my machine that may present some consideration.

I am dialling into the network for both ISP's.

I have a network card that is sometimes used to connect to an NT server locally.
 
Currently, I only have one ISP; however, my question stems from my desire to add a second ISP and therefore I need an additional host and domain because I currently can not ping an IP by name and can only do this by IP.  Therefore, I can not access my email.

Go to my computer, then Dial Up networking then click on make new connection. Enter all data and you will have your new ISP set up on your computer. When you go to dial in you will be able to select which ISP you want to dial with a drop box. Enjoy

This does not solve my problem because unfortuantely win95 only allows me to specify one host and one domain.  Yes, dial up networking allows various DNS with each ISP;however, the OS only allows one domain and one host in TCP/IP in Network under Control Pannel.  Please, try this one again.  Thank you in advance.

I think you may want to look into using NetSwitcher.  Check out their web site at www.netswitcher.com.  You can download a trial version and see if it works for you.  If it does, how about some points ;-)
