File/Printer Sharing

I'm using Win95 on a Toshiba Portege 650CT on a Netware 4.x network.

When I got my laptop it did not have file/printer sharing services installed.  Now I need to make some of my files available for sharing.  I tried re-running Win95 setup, and when I got to the Network setup section clicked on file and printer sharing and said yes, i want to share files, yes i want to share printers.  But when Setup finished, I still didn't have a file/printer sharing button in the Network applet in the Cntl Panel, altho I did have a service that appeared called File/printer sharing for Netware Networks.  When I click on Add, I can only add client, protocol, or adapter--not any additional services.

Moreover, my network printing now doesn't work at all--it says the printers are all offline--which seems like an amazing coincidence, since everything worked fine before I went through the above process.  However, all my other network stuff (email, network neighborhood, etc.) still work fine--just not printing.

What do I need to do?  Is there a way to check to see if I have all the right files installed?
