Why have you installed Win95&NWserver on the same PC?!

Anyway, this is imposible.

I have seen a client that can be installed on windows 95 stand alone pc to enable connection to a novell network however it is my understanding that Novell workstation software must be installed as well.

However, in your case, I doubt it would work.
Moreover I thought Novell servers were meant to be dedicated machines.
Anyway, why do you need to get the data from the same pc?

If the NW server is a different machine than the workstation use rconsole, load monitor , goto drive information, from there you should see partition information as to which sys,vol name is on which drive and how big the partitions are.

If you are running a Win 95 PC connectet to a Novell network,
1- Open a DOS window.
2- Login to the server as a SUPERVISOR, or as a user with supervisor rights.
3- Type : RCONSOLE
4- Type : LOAD MONITOR
5- Use the erow key to go down to DRIVE INFORMATION
6- Now you can see the drive as the Novell partition information

I don't know of an installable NW file system for Win95.  You must have netware running to read the data in a Netware partition.  I understand you are running Netware on a dual booted
Win95 machine with one hard drive.  This can be done with OS/2
and have both running at the same time but with Win95 you have
to boot to MSDOS mode then run server on Win95 machine.  I think
what you want to do needs two machines unless you just want to move some data to the DOS partition from the Netware then TOOLBOX6 could be used. See the link below to download and learn
about it:

Not enough information on what you are trying to do.
If you need a copy of the HD that have Netware partition on it
to another HD to put in another machine, then a program like Quaterdeck's Diskclone, PowerQuest's DriveCopy or Drive Image and
any number of the other disk cloning programs will serve.  If
you want the data on the Netware partition transfered to another type partition or data medium then you must load Netware then copy it to the other medium.  There are NLM's that will let you
copy data from a volume to the dos partition. Let me know if this
is what you want.  You must have enough free space on c: to do that.

There is also a little known program called Captain Nemo, that will let you see Novell Partitions and gets right around the Novell File System security as well.

I did this once in an emergency.
