Installing A Workstation

This is a historical document. The software mentioned has gone through several versions, if it has not become extinct. The pre-install and maintenance instructions should still be good, though.

In this series:

I will show how to set up a workstation (personal computer) to run Windows 2000 on a local-area network using Novell NetWare 5.x.

I use X:\path\ to refer to a folder on a Novell network at mapped drive X. I use Y: for a user's personal or departmental network drive.

I will not show, for reasons of security, how to sync logins in a Windows 2000 workstation with Novell Client.

I will not show how to log a workstation to a Windows 2000 server network, partly for security reasons and partly out of ignorance. (Truthfully, Linux/Samba is the closest thing I've come to working closely with a WinNT-type network.)
