Broadcast a message to clients from the server

Can I send flash message or broadcast a message from the server to all my clients or to a specific client in the LAN. The LAN pc's having OS Win95 and Win98. Do I need to install some flash messaging software?

Sure, you can add some messaging software or use one of Microsoft's built in messaging tools. Win95 and Win98 have winpopup, which will allow you to send messages, and there is also the NET SEND command. I can't remember if the NET command is on Win95 machines, if not you can copy it over and it should work.
