These resources can not be configured using the 3Com Configuration and Diagnostic program for DOS. Windows 3.x or Windows for Workgroups (WFW) ------------------------------------------- The 3Com ComsLink (TM) program can be used to configure a PC in a NetWare DOS client environment. After connecting to a server, run WSINSTALL for full Windows support. (Ask your system administrator for the location of this Novell installation utility.) For non-NetWare environments, install the client software as specified by your network operating system vendor. Windows 3.x and WFW have internal support for Microsoft networking environments.
