Please note, you *can_not* use XTreeLink with Win95 or 98,
it was designed solely to work under an MS DOS environment !!

For transfering files between two Win9x or an MS DOS and an MS Win9x
system, please use either the MS DOS 6.xx tool "Interlink",
the Win9x tool "Direct Cable Connection"

For more information on these programs, please refer to
the links collection I recently compiled,
just click on the link given below.

Hope that helps
