NetChat allows you to conduct a conversation with users on other
computers connected to yours via a local area network (LAN).


To use NetChat, simply type "NetChat" at the DOS prompt. NetChat
will prompt for your name and join you to the ongoing conversation
(if any) on the LAN. To send a line of text to the other
participants, type a line of text (which will appear at the
bottom of the screen) and press Enter. To leave the conversation,
hold the "Ctrl" key down and, while doing so, press the "C" key.

may need to load a NetBIOS emulator prior to running NetChat.
This is usually accomplished by running a program called NETBIOS.
