Couldn't tell you word one about Ethernet protocols, except that it wouldn't take much of a stock C64's CPU to handle DMA. Transferring a 32K chunk at 1 MByte/sec would happen in, well, 32768 1MHz clock cycles, plus the time it takes to set up the transfer. In otherwords, little or no real CPU load. The worst load you'll have is interpreting that data and storing it, displaying it, or whatever. > If you can do that, I'll worship you!

An Ethernet connection between your Windows box and anothr computer like the C64, as far as I know. Network Neighborhood is just a convenient way to point to any given machine on the LAN, as far as I know. -- ___________________________________ _____ _____ | _///@@@| | | firstname.lastname@example.org /'//ZZ@@|____ | | |'''/ |'/@7 | | http://home.kscable.com/natedac |`'| `~~' | | | `| .--. | | C64/C128 - What's *YOUR* hobby? | `\____|___\ | | \_ | | |___________________________________ \_____| _____| - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
