I am trying to set up users on Win 95 clients.  Connecting to Netware (3.12) is easy, using IPX and netbios.  However, During the login script, I keep getting an error message saying something like "cannot find Y:\command.com".  It is alsways the Y mapping, which is not included in the login script.  It doesn't interfere with ordinary operation, but it is irritating for users.

I'm sure this is simple.  Any ideas?

Check if you have MAP INS Sn:= statements in your login scripts?  Is there some calls to a batch file? When make a call to batch file, system will launch command.com at first.

In addition, make sure you give enough drive letters to netware while run login scripts, especially when you map a lot of drives at same time.

Yes, there are about 10 Map insert statements.  I'm not sure if there are any calls to a batch file.  How does this give me a Y: error anyway?  If we do launch command.com, why does it look for this on Y:, and how do we change it??
We map several drives for users, depending on the groups they are in.  Most users get 3 mappings (in addition to the map inserts, which are global)

It is looking for command.com on your y drive due to the comspec command in your login script.  Post your login script here and we will try to help you.

I would also reject the previous answer as bbao seems to have lost interest and you will get more answers if your question is open.

Sorry, lindr, I checked whether bbao's answer worked, and it did.  The comspec referred back to a search mapping.  He gets the points.
