Problem
How to connect to a Novell network.
Solution
Get the Novell requester from Novell (http://netwire.novell.com/home/client/os2/os2.htm). Warp Connect includes the requester. If you intend to use TCP/IP, you must use a NDIS driver.
Problem
Can not connect to the Novell Network when installing Warp Connect.
Solution
Install Warp with no network support, then install the Novell requester separately.
Problem
Can not use the TCP/IP protocol.
Can not get the Internet programs to connect.
Solution
You must use a NDIS driver, not the ODI driver.
Problem
The icons for the programs on the Novell network get replaced by a "broken link" icon, and the DOS settings are replaced by the default ones.
Solution
Create a "Program Object" using the "Templates" folder, and assign the program on the network to that program object, then copy the Icon to your local disk, and use that icon.
Problem
How to login the my Novell Network and to map the network drives automatically when the computer boots?
Solution
Start the program NWTOOLS.EXE that came with the Novell requester and map the network drives as desired and save the settings. Modify (or create if needed) the file STARTUP.CMD and add the line: "c:\netware\nwtools c:\netware\YourFile.nws autoexit" where YourFile is the name of the file where you saved your mapping with NWTOOLS.

Finally, remove the word "CONNECTIONS" after the line "AUTOSTART" in the CONFIG.SYS file.
