    i assume you mean netware 5.1???
    what are you trying to do exacly?  generally its the other way around, IE you would want the client (xp home) to recognize/access the server (netware)

    Hi cdbrother,

    It looks like that Windows XP Home isn't supported by Novell.

    this is straight from novell's website.. it says that the client MAY work on home, but it isn't designed for it.

    another link that says it's not supported
