    Possibly not true - if they were OEM licensed disks (and back in 95 days, it was normal to ship OS discs with machines) then the license dies with the machine and you can't transfer them.

    It certainly used to be possible to buy hardware to do bridging. I'd be surprised if they are not still out there somewhere.

    My understanding of bridging was that it was a way of extending a segment or connecting segments of dissimilar media types together. I do also remember thinking of switches as multi-port bridges when they first appeared!

    Bridging was a common issue with our University 'Residential' Network when I was at Lancaster. Each user paid for their connection in their room, and it was locked to a single computer via MAC address.

    I worked in the small workshop which fixed the virus ridden machines that the students had, and a good number of them had turned on bridging - but had left their second NIC back in their room, so when we tried to do anything, the connection was a bridge to no-where and just didn't work. Great fun.

    Must admit that was always my understanding.
