  2. Microsoft Virtual PC indicates a number of different types of NICs. Of of them are a DEC 21140 NIC.
  3. You must first start a Virtual Machine before you can attach a Virtual Floppy Disk to it. Then you must restart the Virtual Machine.
  4. You can also copy this Virtual Floppy Disk using a product such as WinImage to a real floppy diskette and then boot the Virtual Machine from a floppy diskette drive.
