With Windows95 I have been able to use the Novell Client setup to log in to our Novell Server.  Wiht
With a new computer with Win98 I get a message that I need to install a Netware Shell on
my PC.  I did not need to do this with Win95.  Is there a place to get this shell?  I have
searched Novell's site and the Microsoft site but with no success.  I also tried to find it on
the Novell 4.11 CD's with out success.  Thanks for your assistance.

Download Netware5 Client . It works finely with all versions of Novell (3.12, 4.10, 4.11 ...)
And then you don't need to install this "shell".

My computer works with win98, Novell 5 Client Intranet on a 4.10 novell netware network
I use a Netware Client like "htam" has suggested on some of my computers, but I like the client that Microsoft provides because it prompts for the server to attach to.  I currently attach to 3 different servers and at times don't want the default server.  The Novell Intranet Client I use does not allow me to enter a server name on startup.

Check the following:
1. Double click on Network in the Control Panel.
2. Check for Client for Netware Networks.  If it exists, make sure Client for Novell Networks is selected under Primary Network Logon.
3. If the client does not exist, add the Microsoft Client for Novell Networks. Then change the Primary Network Logon from Client for Microsoft Networks to Client for Novell Networks.

This works on my Novell 3.11 and 3.12 servers using Windows 95 and 98.
