We use Windows 2003 server for most everything; however, we still have an old. but important, application that runs off an old Novell server.  With XP, we simply used the "client service for netware" in addition to the "client for Microsoft networks" so we can map to the netware volume in addition to our windows servers.    We skipped Vista, but I see a day soon that we might want to move onto Windows 7.    Does anything like the "client service for Netware" exist with Windows 7?

I believe so, I will double check and post back again, but the above question may help you ;

Commented:
Yes it does. See attached screenshot. We still use novell at our company (until we finish our Windows Server migration) and I have not had any serious issues with the client on Win7.

Where would I find the "Novell Client for Windows".   When I tried to add a client to the Local Area Client, the Novell client is not an option.

You have to download it from Novell.  This is for Vista, but it has proven to work just fine on 7.

Hi Arixsin,

I was confident that it would work in Windows7 as well but I was unable to find it when I try adding the service ; :-) you just provided the link I was after as well - thanks
