Probably the dialer is included here - I've never seen IE5/16
distributed without it. (But then I've only encountered it at a very
small number of sites. ;)


BTW, such a notebook makes a desktop of the same era look very, very
old, even if some components may not be as fast or feature-rich. My new
one (two years old, but still in quite good shape - originally I had
intended to buy an old 486 based one, but following my parents' advice I
decided to get something newer and finally found this one at a
reasonable price) is the first computer not to run WfW here (lack of
drivers) - but Win2k (a.k.a. NT 5) is also a very nice OS if you have
the hardware - mostly: RAM (128 megs would be nice) - for it (for ME you
need the same hardware, but internally it's just the same old crap).
With an additional small program you can have semi-transparent program
windows - that may not be very useful in most cases and is probably not
feasible on typical machines running Calmira (anyone interested in
programming the impossible?), but it sure looks nice ;). BTW I networked
my three machines today via a switch recently bought via Ebay (stuff
like that is usuall much cheaper there) - works like a charm (and the
connection to my parents' machine also works well). Haven't tried
printer sharing from Win2k to WfW yet, though - would be great if I
could use that USB printer from WfW :).
