First the Windows laptop. Windows 95 doesn't seem to have an ipconfig
command, but it does have winipcfg. Here's the output:

Host Name: X

NetBios Scope Id:

Now the Linux box:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:60:08:8F:CA:9C  
          inet addr:  Bcast: 
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x4000 

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback  
          inet addr:  Mask:
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:3924  Metric:1
          RX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 

Also, dmesg on the linux box gives:

3c59x.c 18Feb01 Donald Becker and others...
eth0: 3Com 3c900 Boomerang 10mbps Combo at 0x4000, 00:60:08:8f:ca:9c,
IRQ 11
8K word-wide RAM 3:5 Rx:Tx split, autoselect/10base2 interface.
Enabling bus-master trasmits and whole frame receives.
eth0: Initial media type 10baseT.

I'm using a simple twisted-pair crossover cable with RJ-45 plugs.

Currently both machines can ping localhost but neither can ping the
other. I was able to get a connection with my previous distribution
(Caldera 2.3) but not since I installed Debain Potato.

All suggestions gratefully received.
