IPX

My Warcraft II Mac LAN has been short on computers lately, and I wanted to try adding a Windows PC into the mix. In order to do that, I would need to use IPX, which I've never really heard of otherwise - and neither has google. First off, do I need any sort of adapters, or can I use any old network? Also, does IPX support more than just AppleTalk and Ethernet? Because that's all the control panel lets me do.

IPX was pretty much obsoleted by the early to mid 1990's superseded by TCP/IP, which is generally the way to go in preference to IPX.

The original Ultimate Doom for Mac CD supplied Mac IPX extensions. Claris FileMaker Pro version 3 has the IPX extensions included in its install set as well, should you want to experiment.
