I suspect that you do not need TCP at all. Since you do not 
have a network card I don't think you are going to be connecting 
to MathLink programs on other computers.

Wolfram Research, has released a update which allows 
Mathematica 2.2.3 for Windows to run with Windows 95. The 
update should work with Mathematica 2.2.2, as well, although 
we have not rigorously tested this configuration. No update 
is required for versions 2.2.1 and earlier. This update 
replaces Mathematica's local protocol, and allows Mathematica 
to run on a Windows 95 system without the installation of TCP, 
which was previously necessary. The update can be obtained from 
MathSource. The reference number is 0207-841.

More details about this (and other frequently asked questions
about Mathematica) can be found in the Technical Support FAQ
area of the Wolfram Research World Wide Web pages.

If you need further help I would suggest that you contact
Wolfram Research Technical Support (support at or 
support-europe at in Europe) directly.

MathSource is accessible by email (mathsource at, by
anonymous ftp/gopher ( and by World Wide
Web (

I hope this helps.
