As I said, Mac OS 9.2.  I'm not interested for my G3 to talk to other

But isn't that typical of the Apple Way?  Right from the start, there
were tools and hardware for the 5150 to talk to the rest of the world.
Apple just kept to their own little community--or did I miss the
announcement of SDLC/SNA support for Mac?
