Hi,
1)Use File and printer sharing for   netware networks.
2)share the drive and verify that the computer name is on the network map.
3)you have now a full access.
Thanks in advance,
Yaniv.

Why not copy it when they logon via the login script. Should be able to do an "NCOPY c:\windows\user.dat f:\public\UserReg\"

Yaniv,

Sorry, I don't understand your answer. I want the 'User.dat' to be copied to the network automatically when an user logs off.

Ajnin,
Your solution is ok, but I will use that to copy the 'User.dat' back from the network to the Win98 workstation when an user logs ON. When an user logs OFF, possible registry changes have to be written to the network.

Have you seen utilities like this one?

They allow you to run programs at shutdown.
