ok... attached to this email is telnet.exe
you should put it in its own directory and make a shortcut to it for on your desktop
while connected to your ISP, fire it up
you should get a little box that pops up
at the laoggin prompt, enter doc then
once logged in, immediately type in
that will tell your computer and our computer to make your screen work
then you can do many things... including "talk"
if you do a "w" at the prompt you can see who is logged in... like psehelp
then you can type
your screen will split in half, and you will see the computer trying to connect with me
if i am around, we can start typing to each other
however; if i am busy and can not talk back, you will need to hit control and the letter "c" at the same time to break out of it
give her a shot?
