Netware 3.12 Purge?

Have most of my workstations running Win NT 3.51 (and a few NT 4.0) on a Novell 3.12 network.  Most commands work ok, however, the purge command gives the following error msg:
    Volume or directory not found
even when executed from the directory it resides in.

Would like to use this command.  I suspect that NT is passing a path that netware does not recognize.  Any
comments out there?

If your using the Microsoft Client it doesn't map a drive letter it uses UNC (ex:server//volume/directory/ ) purge for some reason wan't a mapped drive in 3.x.

Use Netware's Client32.  There is a version that runs with NT 4.0 (I have never tried it with 3.51).  Make sure there is a login script for each NT user and that drive mapping is active.

Hope that helps.
