Andrew's NEC ProSpeed 286 Page

I had one of these in January of 2003 but could not undo the boot password and eventually gave up on it. In trying to find out how to unlock it I received some setup files from LW who sent them all to me when I offered to post them online so people would stop contacting him about some old news group postings with his name on them. Finally (May 2005) I am doing this, prompted by a glossy NEC ad I stumbled across recently:

Almost makes you want to buy one, doesn't it?

The files are in a single zipped folder. Included is a text file "ltlist.txt" that lists a heap of files that were available on the "NEC Technologies BBS". I don't have all of them but include the list in case it helps you identify file content or file names for some other machines.
