A vendor wants to charege me $200 to "configure each of my 8 Windows 95 computers onto a network where the server is running SCO UNIX 5.  This is not a wire cost or an emulator or eithernet board cost..Thats extra!  This is just to "configure the computers to the network"  What is involved, in other words, what is he doing for $200 each?

When he says "configure" what does he mean? Is it simple file / disk / printer sharing, or is he installing NFS client software? Or prehaps did you ask him to allow you to administor the pcs for the unix server? Or something else? We need more details.....

Install Network client software, set net sub masks etc. set up shared and usage restrictions on printers and folders.

Well, you can do that yourself.

You need to assign your internal network unique IP addresses of the style 192.168.1.x whereas 1 > x < 255, including the SCO server. Each machine has a netmask of 255.255.255.0

Then, configure each client to point their gateway to the SCO server IP number.

Then point the DNS to the SCO server IP number.

Then add the names of the Win95 shares in the samba configuration files.

And that't about it. You have a running network.
