Because RPCEmu has no mechanism from within it to set up and display a

Can't even mount a memory stick.
Unless you could explain how I might do it?  ;-) (Memory stick is F:\)

I understand that, but a lot of extra clunk work to do it... and on four

But don't understand that at all?

Bottom line is, with RPCEmu semi networking I can browse, I can post
email, but no connection with the other four computers on the LAN. 

Not in RISC OS (ShareFS) nor externally with LanMan98, so that rather
limits the use of a RPCEmu install.

Can't even connect to the NAS. (I use LanMan98 to connect).
Unless you know different.  :-)
Thanks for your thoughts.
