Windows 95/98/ME Chebucto Plus Setup

          Here is the setup information for Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows ME. You will need to have your Chebucto Plus password before proceeding. You may also require your Windows 95, 98 or ME CD-ROM (or disks). Clicking on a screen shot will show a larger version.


Windows 95/ 98/ ME Manual Setup

          Windows 98 and ME users may skip ahead. There are two versions of Windows 95: the original and OSR2, which Microsoft released in December 1996. If you purchased your computer or copy of Windows 95 before December 1996, you should have the original Windows 95. If you purchased your computer or copy of Windows 95 since December 1996, you probably have OSR2 (but may have purchased old stock with the original version).

          To determine which version of Windows 95 you have, follow these steps:

  1. While holding down the ALT key, double-click on the My Computer icon on your desktop
  2. In the System Properties dialog box if it lists your system as being Microsoft Windows 95 4.00.950 B, then you are running the OSR2 version, if it just lists Microsoft Windows 95 4.00.950 or 4.00.950 A, then you are running the original release of Windows 95.
  3. Click on OK button

          Setting up Windows 95/ 98/ ME to use Chebucto Plus is a four step process:

  1. Install Dial-Up Networking (if not already installed)
  2. Install TCP/IP Protocol (if not already installed)
  3. Define a Dial-Up Networking Connection
  4. Get Connected!
