PC Maclan (the lastest) for windows 98 is not a great product.
It has caused instability: blue screens (even while installing)
It has caused failures: One laptop locks up if it goes to sleep with
it on, deactivate the components in the network panel, it works fine.
IT WILL NOT UNINSTALL: (Seen on both systems) Run the uninstall
program and it says that the uninstaller failed and then you have to
take it out bay hand.

It does lets you share files and printers. That does work.

We are going to try and return it, lock stock and barrel, on Monday.

We do have an old version running for Win95 that has never caused
these problems, but that system is hardly ever used.
