RPrinter in Win95

My file server is running Novell 3.12. My print queues are handled by RPrinter.
How can I get RPrinter to work in Windows95 (running the Novell 32 Client for Win95/98)? If I try to run RPrinter from Windows it tells me it must be loaded before windows loads but if I put the NETX/IPX and RPRINTER commands in my autoexec.bat file windows95 get most upset and will not load. What am I doing wrong?

For Win95 to control a network printer you should use the Win95 version of Nprinter.
Search for  nptr95.exe or TID 2906440 at Novell's support site at:
The README has a link to nptr95.exe.  The GUI version was created to address this problem and was designed for the 32 bit client of Win95/8.
