When I try to go into MS-DOS the computer flashes a "Incorrect MS-DOS version" message on the screen and then returns to Windows 95.  This seems to have started when we upgraded our Novell network to version 4.11.

ooooo that's a kinky one...

I think Novell still relys on the higher DOS versions lik 5.0, 6.0.

Only problem is, Win 95 uses some kind of 'skeleton' dos version (4.10 or something)

The only sure fire way I can give you of taking a shot at this is to upgrade the DOS files to ver 6.0.  I think Novell is looking for a familiar DOS version.

(I didn't select 'answer' in hopes that someone would have a quicker solution).

Good luck!

Most likly you two two different command.com file in your system. check the date and files between these two command.com files. one should be in you root directory and an other one should be in your dos directory.  If you do have two different command.com files, copy the one from your root directory into the one in your dos directory, and better reinstall you MS Dos.

PS.  Check the path on your server, make sure it did not assigned to any other Dos path too.
