   Win95 Network Setup installed a real mode client for NetWare at the
   same time as the protected mode one. If you exit to DOS ("Restart in
   DOS mode") or boot to "Command Prompt Only", and you're using
   Microsoft's Client for NetWare, you can log in to the NetWare server
   by typing

NET START NWREDIR

   at the DOS prompt. This will load a NETX compatible client using NDIS2
   drivers and protocols. You can then change to your login drive and
   perform a normal DOS client login. Since it's only a NETX compatible
   client it can't perform NDS logins; so you could try:

NET START NWLINK

   Which uses Novell's VLM client, to do NDS logins. I haven't tried
   using Microsoft's IPX and Novell's client together, but in theory it
   should work. If it doesn't, you can always load Novell's net card
   drivers (LSL, etc) and VLM.
   
   NOTE: NWREDIR's real mode components take more conventional memory
   than a NETX client would, so you should only use this if your
   application can't run in a DOS session, or if you're performing any
   debugging. However, these components will automatically load high if
   you have upper memory available. You should prepare a special PIF
   file for this kind of configuration.
   
   In addition, I found sometimes NET START NWREDIR would give a "This
   file system is incompatible" style of message, which happens more
   often on NetWare 4 servers. If this happens, NET START NWLINK followed
   by NETX or VLM should work.
