First of all, I'm not going to waste another minute of my time on this unless
you immediately stop saying "Windows DOS box" and start saying "DOS386 VM".
Running "WIN" is NOT the only way to load DOS386, and you CAN have DOS386 VMs
that are not Windows DOS boxes. For system-level stuff we are talking about it
doesn't matter a bit whether your VM is the System VM, a VM created by the
WSHELL virtual device (a Windows DOS box), or a VM created by some other
virtual device (e.g., a user session in my upcoming MultiDOS operating system).

As for packet drivers, one must be DOS386-aware in order to function in DOS386
VMs. I don't know which of the common drivers are and which are not.
