Anyone Remember Netware 3.12?

I have a customer that pulled and old server out of the basement and wants to try and bring it back. It did not boot so I found a similar one (PATA Hard Drive) and the drive seemed to boot. The drive was on the secondary IDE channel and I remembered enough to load ISADISK at 170 INT F wasn't it? It loaded but still can't mount SYS.

FDISK does reflect a non-DOS partition. What else can I try?

On the dos partition ,there should be a file called startup.ncf,it's just a batch file that can be opened with notepad or any ascii editor,post it .
Most modern patched 3.12 used ideata ham drivers .
Isadisk was pretty much abandoned.

The server boots. I can edit both the autoexec.ncf and startup.ncf after "load install" and modify them to my hearts content. The ideata.ham seemed to work. Good memory :)
