Here is a list of PC-NFS prices FYI. I just thought I would point out the
$995 price for the PC included an ethernet card.

PC-NFS-56 Media: $325 (1-4 copies) - $175 (250+ copies)

PC-NFS-51 Media and Manual: $395 (1-4 copies) - $220 (250+ copies)

PC-NFS-3C-51 Media, Manual and Board: $995 (1-4 copies) - $645 (250+ copies)

You can get down to about $100/copy of the software with right to copy
options if you are heavy (500+) use.

I have not checked recently, but the board included was the 3COM 3C501
last time I checked. (Sept. 1987)
