Hi,
I've noticed that on Win95 machines connected to a Netware 4.1 network, there's an environment variable:  WINDOWS_LOGIN=0.  We're using Novell's Client32.  Can anyone tell me what this variable is for and how it gets
set?  I,ve searched Novell's support site, MSKB, and checked the Win95 resource kit, but I can't find any reference to it.  Nothing's broken here, but I want to fix it anyway.  
Thanks,

These machines have Client32 login to Netware as the primary login, and the user logged in has his Win95 Pword as NULL.
This says login to Windows 95 not required for this user.
To set this up you login in to Netware then when the Windows 95
verify password dialog pops up delete all the "*" in the first
field and leave the second blank then click OK.  This sets you windows 95 password to NULL, you can do this in other ways also.
