Hints and Tips

Novell NetWare

1. Before you begin to install driver support for WFW and Novell NetWare
   on the same workstation, you'll need these Novell NetWare files:
   obtain these files, do one of the following:
   a  Download the self-extracting file WINDR3.EXE from Novell NetWire
      forum on CompuServe or Novell's FTP server on the internet
      ( or WWW
   b  Call Novell (1-800-NETWARE) to have the files sent to you.
   c  Contact a Novell NetWare dealer in your area.

2  Set up the workstation to connect to NetWare using the DOS ODI client

3  Load the ODI driver and login to your NetWare server.

4  Start WFW and set up the driver for the EtherExpress PRO/100B adapter
   by following the instructions shown above. When the driver is chosen,
   WFW detects the ODI driver is already loaded and automatically
   installs the appropriate support.  Next to the adapter name in the
   Network Drivers window, you'll see [ODI/NDIS3] which indicates it
   recognized the ODI driver.


   Windows for Workgroups(WFW) creates the PROTOCOL.INI for you. This is
   provided for reference. This is a sample with Microsoft NetBEUI and
   IPX/SPX Compatible Transport with NetBIOS.
