I am wanting to use my linux box as my only ISP. However, I really
do not care over-much for the Orca screen reader. It is just fine
for recreation and light jobs, but that's it. When ever I have to
get some serious work done, I badly need my good old reliable dos
machine and the JAWS screen reader. In order for me to make this
idea work, I will need to connect my dos and linux boxes, so that
I can access the linux box from the dos machine.

I would sincerely appreciate any and all input that any of you are
willing to provide having to do with how one would go about
creating a sort of network between two different computers such
that they can work together as a unified system. For example, I
understand that it is possible for me to use any number of Lynx
versions with an ethernet-card in order to do this, but I do not
have such a peripheral on my dos box, which is where it would need
to be installed.

So in short, is it possible to run a serial cable between the two
machines and employ a dos-based software to facilitate full access
to the linux box from the dos box? In other words, is there a dos
utility that will allow a dos box to access a linux box. It is
important to note that I am using commo on my dos machine, and I
would like to keep using it if possible.

As always, thanks in advance.

Bright Blessings,
