1.  By Netsetup make a serverinstallation of Win95
2.  Get the latest Novell 32 bit client from Novell, and install. this
     in point 1 win95 installation directory. You can find a release      note from Novell (Novell site), how to implement 32 bit client      into an unattached (msbatch.inf) installation.

My history:
I have made the first 2 above step.Be carefull about installation of Novell client. There is two file you have to replace BEFORE installation into Win95 directory (nwsetup.dll and locwin16.dll). You can get the right version (I cant remember datestamp) on Novell site. If you dont change this file, your installation probably hang when Win95 installation shall reboot first time.
I have made a dos boot disk with possibility for Novell access by 4 different networkcard (in my factory, we have 800 PC with different netcard).
This boot do different thing. It formats my C drive, make a sys C, copy nessesary DOS and Novell requester files to drive C including standard preconfigured msbatch.inf, and then make a automatic reboot.
I forgotton a very important thing. I run a litlle program I have made. This ask the my PC supporter (installation people) for who is the user, users dep. which printers, which prim. Novell server, which netvolume, which IP address, which which. All this data are used to automatic changing msbatch.inf
Then PC boot again, it made a login to my Novell configuration server, and then start install. by: setup /IW /IS c:\msbatch.inf
My standard msbatch.inf file remove MSN and inbox icon, change to my screensaver, change wallpaper and backcolor and a little bit more.
This is a total handfree Win95 installation with Novell 32 bit client.
