The 8.x release of the Clarkson collection of packet drivers is
The packet drivers are for MS-DOS, and serve to hide the difference between
network cards, and allow multiple protocol stacks to access the same card.
Most often people are interested in running Novell's Netware and TCP/IP
at the same time.

The Clarkson packet driver collection
The Clarkson collection of packet drivers is available by FTP, by
archive-server, and by modem. They come in two flavors -- executables
only (drivers.zip), and source+executables (driverss.zip). All of the
following instructions apply to both drivers.zip and driverss.zip.
I distribute the packet drivers on two 360K 5.25" disks, or a 720K
3.5" disk. I charge a fee for the service of copying and mailing
these disks. You can send me a check for $20, or you can send me a
purchse order and I will bill you for $22. NY residents add 7% sales
tax, overseas orders add $3 for shipping. If you send a check,
please be sure it is in US dollars -- the bank charges me $15 to
convert checks drawn in foreign currencies.
