i'm working with a novell netware 3.12 server
on its main 3 gig harddrive is a directory that is used for an accounting software program by windows 2000 and 98 clients
right now the server when turned on boots straight into netware (i'm assuming) and it boots directly into a "novell netware print server v3.16"
my question is, i'm probally going to get rid of this server and put in a 2000 server(ms win) but for now i'd like to get into netware and look around
i can view the whole harddrive from the ms clients however if i were to reset the netware server what would i have to do to get to a command prompt or see a gui, i've never delt with netware before and the only thing i really need from this server is the accounting software's directory (i believe) which i've already backed up on to my machine
this companies computers and systems are very old and still running dos clients i'm doing my best to upgrade everything and get full functionality out of their machines but it's hard when there's only 6 employees and not one of them knows a thing about computers, and the old tech companies they used "no longer support dos systems" etc...
not to mention the machines themselves are on their last legs
