yes ... should be no problem.
I use calmira and connect to a linux samba server without problems.

PS: I have some small problems with calmira:

eg instead of the drive/folder symbol with a hand below it, I get nothing :)
Is it possible that the shared drive/folder icons didn't make it into calmira ?
* and the other problem is, that DOS windows have no icon in the taskbar

Install microsoft network, and use the same workgroup as the XP box uses.
If you want to be able to access the win3.11 ressources from the XP box, you
have to also enable file sharing on it.

yes ... a bit

Ram doubler doesn't double ram :)
it manages the GDI and User Heaps better.

try it.
It is a single .386 file, if you don't want it any longer you can comment out
the line in system.ini
