Need vbscript to remove csnw & ipx from W2K pro workstations

We are deploying a lot of W2K Pro desktops in a Novell environment. We are re-engineering their environment to AD and can't just migrate. We want to bridge them to their files/apps on Novell until we have completed the desktop reimaging and then want to use their logon script to call a vbscript already on their new workstation that will remove csnw and ipx.
 
I need that script.  From what I can tell it is the nwcfg.dll & ipxcfg.dll that are used.

Could you please elaborate on what you actually need? You have written down the scenario of what you are trying to do, but what should the VBScript actually do? Should it delete some files? I think you need that, but I'm not sure

In VBSCript you can use the filesystemobject to delete files.

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
fso.DeleteFile("c:\myfile.txt")
Set fso = Nothing

Please elaborate on exactly what should be done...

Regards,
CJ

We want to remove the CSNW and IPX unattended.  We want to use the script to replace manually going into network properties and removing the service and protocol.  We are trying to avoid a second desktop touch.
From what I've read in the Resource kit these are the two files that are used when you install/uninstall these items.  They probably refer to other files also but I don't know.
I think it more than just deleting the files.  I think it is processing the Dll
