   The worst complication that rises over Win95 dial-up networking, is
   when you try to dial out to The Internet while logged into a NetWare
   network, it will warn you that it must disconnect from the NetWare
   server, since the Client for NetWare can only log in to one NetWare
   server at a time. To avoid this, have "Log on to network" turned off
   in your dial up connection's Server Type.
   Rich Graves claims this is because of Microsoft's PPP "Extensions",
   but I think it's just because Client for NetWare can't log in to more
   than one server. LOGIN and ATTACH are two different actions; you can
   ATTACH to a NetWare server remotely after you logged in to a LAN
   NetWare server. Client for MS networks does not have this limitation.
   Client32 Warning: Many people wrote me to share their grief of trying
   to get Client32 computers to dial-up to the Internet without having to
   disconnect from their NetWare servers. While turning off "Log on to
   network" in Server Type works great with Client for NetWare and
   Services for NDS, it doesn't work with Client32! I'm sure Novell is
   hard at work (NOT) on this problem...
