Windows 3.1x:
MS Internet Explorer 3.03 (full install):
TCP/IP stack and dialer (MUCH more reliable than Trumpet Winsock)
Fits on 4 3.5" HD disks

Windows 95:
In most cases, the computer already has everything needed:
Dial-Up Networking (part of Win95 OS)
MS Internet Explorer 3.0x (most installs will have the following
packaged with it):
MS Internet Mail and News
IF only MS Internet Explorer 2.x or earlier is installed, new versions
of MSIE/MS Internet Mail are downloadable from the net (as well
as Netscape, etc.)
Telnet and FTP (command-line based) are already built into the OS

We have one of our customers handle our Mac users since we know nothing
about Macs...
