Yes, you can do Peep to Peer networking between Beta 3 and 95

Here are a few links that give step by step instructions for setting up peer to peer networking. Great for sharing resources and gaming.

Window 95 and 98 will work together for networking.  Here are some helpful hints

Yes you can go peer to peer but you have very little time.  Your beta version will shut down Aug. 27th.  I was running a test to see if my unit was ok for year 2000 and when the program I was using put in a date for the year 2000 I was locked out of using my beta version.  I was set up for networking to my wife's unit and I had to buy a "REAL" Windows 98.  I used the OEM Windows 98 and it did the install and I did not lose the network settings.  I tell you all of this in case you are setup for Peer to Peer and you need to upgrade to Windows 98 after Aug. 27th.

Windows 98 found my plug and play network card just fine and I went to Control Panel/Networking and installed the following

Client for Microsoft networking
file and printer sharing  (if you need to share these two)
Net BEUI (for the name of my network card)
(My card) Ethernet Adapter

Be sure to give a name to each of the computer units and you will have to mark your hard drives or dir. for sharing.

You may need to add printer software to each unit if you plan to share printers.
