    I am trying to install doslynx(it is a dos command line application) on my MacBook pro. I have dosbox(a dos emulator) on my Mac, and I am running Mac os x (10.6.4)

    In the readme for doslynx it says I you may need to load a packet driver emulator. They also talk about tcp/ip, which I think is referring to my Internet connection.

    Does anyone know what driver emulator I would want? Or point me to were I could get the driver, or how to install it? Any help would be appreciated.

    I really don't have a reason. I got dosbox for games initially and now I am installing old dos software. Most of the software so far is atleast installing really well. I used to run a version of ms-dos on my Mac se via soft pc. An emulator program.

    I actually have lynx, I guess one reason I want doslynx is to install dos software directly into my dosbox emulator.

    I have to find out a little about my Internet connection, so I can get the right driver.

    Any help would be appreciated.
