What about the drivers from "The Crynwr packet driver collection". The
times I used more dos machines, I installed these drivers for quite a
few different ethernet adapters and run all kind of software and
managed it to run win3.1x with all kind of windows networking sw over
that interface.

A dos client with some network support would be greate, I've quite
some dos pc's standing around that could do some work.
