I have a network on a college campus with both NetWare 4.1 and NT servers.  Users' login names and passwords are the same on each server.  Is there a way for Windows 95 to have a single consistent login to both servers and avoid the Windows Password prompt.  I understand if I set a password for Windows and save the NT password in the password file,  this could be accomplished but our users are roaming from PC to PC in computer labs and libraries and would have to go through the windows password dialogue everytime they use a PC they have not used before.  The way it stands now, when a user logs in to a PC they have not used before, they get the Client32 login for Netware, then the Windows Login, then the Windows NT login.  I just want to have a single login on every machine.   Is there a way to accomplish this?  Please do not recommend NDS for NT.  I am aware of the product but do not wan't to purue that just yet.  Thanks.

...he says no to NDS for NT and thinks it's easy!?   ;-)

May be a stretch, but depending on how strong the authentication requirement is to each of the three entities, can you do something with including the login to one in another's login script, or a BAT file, or a startup group?  For instance, if a shared generic ID is OK for one server, or no Windows95 login is really needed.....

just a thought.
