Hi eeverybody! I'm trying to install network drivers in my VM for Chicago build 81 (and for build 99) in order to give it internet access. I'm using VMware Workstation 11. How can I make it work? What adapter should I use? Thanks for any help :)

you have much better luck with Chicago 99 rather than 81 and don't use VMware for it, either use QEMU, Bochs or PCem 10.1 Experimental, since both have support for the ne2000 nic out of the box (isa).

well, I use PCem, but Bochs, for ethernet uses, it's good too, QEMU is command-line based.

Right, i think PCem will be better for my use. Which driver should I use in it with Chicago 99 to get internet? Thanks and sorry to bother you :)

I'd suggest using this version of PCem:
http://citadel.rol.im/pcem101_experimental.7z

Once you download and run it, use the 'Novell NE2000' adapter by selecting it from the 'Settings --> Configure..' screen.
