I installed the network card in the Brio no prob, but the old 586 has no PCI slots, and its a PCI network card. It only has the bigger slots (I take it they're ISA, I've got no documentation). Is there any kind of adaptor or anything that I can get, or will I have to go and buy an ISA network card (sorry, I'm not much of a hardware guy)
You can't fit a PCI card into a ISA computer short of replacing the
motherboard. The best bet is to go into (shudder) Cash Converters and
pick up a cheap-o ISA card from there.
