Just setup TCP/IP networking on the W95 machine.  No mods
to FBSD required.  

Samba will let you share FBSD filesystems with the 95 systems.
NFS is not included with the products from redmond.

Hmm.  I'd use a Smarter Host entry in and add a
static route to that host going through the 9600 connection.
Set the Smarter Host to your upstream's SMTP host.

I don't have a mailstat in any of my 2.2 system's /var/log
so this is either a log used by a program you've written
or one of the ports/packages I don't use.  I'd look into
home use first, see syslog.conf for help tracking it down.
