Many thanks for the lead. Now printed and off to a darkened room, to read and digest.
I may be gone for some time.

Hello Gerry -
The page is actually still up on Bones' JHB pages (bless his cotton socks, what would we all do without him <g>). See http://homepages.mcb.net/bones/jhb/OnLine/FPI/FPI_ATOC_Setup.htm
Problem is, of course, most of the info is now obsolete with the sad demise of FPI (it was all very much ATOC-specific) but you may get something from it... Be VERY careful, networking can be a total minefield <G>. Maybe Peter or Paul (if they could carefully climb down from the wall first - sorry, showing my age again) could offer a more up-to-date tutorial on home networking? I am a mere novice...

Mike, Err, any chance of a copy of the "how to do it" article, if you still have it? If so, off line would be fine. At present I'm the possessor of 2 PCs, with a Router Switch unit in the mail. Total ignorance isn't an asset.

I've dropped a line to Grant as you suggested (and copied it you
off-list). I took the liberty of quoting Paul (hope he
every postas his use of his home LAN set-up is very similar to mine. I didn't copy the post to the List simply because I really only repeated the points that Paul and I had already made.
Looking back into my email archives (yes, I really have kept
to the List since the year dot - sad really...) I found thatI started
to use FS/FPI across a LAN only after reading an article about 'how-to-do-it' on your JHB pages. An article that was attributed to Peter Dodds!
I'll keep you in touch with anything that I get back from Grant.
