What OS is on it? That seems to be an old model. I only see DOS and 3.1 drivers.

No it is the one that goes into the box in place of the floppy drive.

I hate to say it but I think you're playing with old stuff and you need to upgrade. There comes a time when it's not worth it anymore.

I just like to tinker, I am online with a desktop, the laptops are just a pastime.

I know what you're saying. I've done the same thing.
Can you network them? I remember installing a program on a PC from the CDROM on another.

First let me ask a stupid question, does it have ethernet or USB ports? I didn't think so. What else is there besides a parallel port?

PC slot with phone cable, external diskette drive connector, expansion connector, parallel connector, serial connector, plus the headphone jacks and microphone jack.

Quote from that site:

With the right kind of cable, serial and parallel ports on a PC support cheap networking of two computers.
