I'm trying to add an XP  computer to a novell domain, I installed the netware client and selected a server I went as far as login into novell as admin. All other computers in this netowork get the novell login screen and then the windows login, how do I get it to work like the others?

There is no "Netware domain", only a NetWare NDS tree.  On your NetWare login screen, there is a series of tabs.  The "NetWare" tab will contain infomration about the NDS tree and NDS username -- this is for the NetWare side.  On the "Workstation" tab, you can provide different credentials for the Windows logon.  In most cases, it is best to use the same NetWare and Windows login name, thus avoiding TWO different login boxes.  If the names and passwords are the same, then the user sees one signon box only.

Did you install the Novell Client32 or the crapware(tm) client that comes with Windows?

I understand that you may well have had advice from a friend, but...

It's not much of a stretch to imagine someone reading my question asking which client you had installed, {http:Q_23863265.html?cid=238#22847165} and coming to the conclusion that they should try the Novell Client32 for Windows XP/2003 instead of the "client" for NetWare that comes with Windows.
