Windows 95 doesn't come with NFS capability out of the box, nor an FTP
server :-(  I take it that you have installed a 3rd party NFS server

You will also need to tell i-zonelap how to resolve the name i-zone.  I
suggest just using the IP address, a la ???.???.???.???:/d

If you want to try the FTP alternative, I seem to recall seeing a freely
distributable W95 FTP server in the TUCOWS archive.
