w98 doesn't have that capability, but maybe the novel server can tell you (don't know anything about novel)

Win98 does not record user logons, but you can use some app for it.

In the windows directory you will find a file called Drwatson.exe this is a diagnostic program for recording information if your computer crashes. It also records the time and date of each startup in a log file.

All you need to do is place a shortcut to this file in your startup group and it will start silently each time the computer boots and record the date and time in the Drwatson.log file.

This MIGHT tell you something:

Do a file search on the system drive, but instead of entering a file name, use the "advanced" tab and search for files CREATED since the last time you used it.

If a user created and saved any files, then the location of the files might provide an idea who logged on and what they did.

Not sure about this, but I think that if you refine the search to show  *.PWL files MODIFIED since you last used it, then this MIGHT narrow it down to you and another person.

No harm in trying.

Sorry, not the "advanced" tab, but the "DATE" tab.

Hello,
You can also look at c:\Windows\cookies
if a user went to a website the cookie will be in their novell name e.g. username@cnn along with a date created or modified.

Good Luck
