    I have a fileserver storage space on my Uni network. The Fileserver is a Novell Netware one.

    I dont want to install the Novell Client.

    I have installed the
    NWLink NetBIOS
    NWLink IPX/SPX Compatible Transport Protocol
    on my ethernet card

    But I dont know where to go from there to be able to access my fileserver space.

    You gotta have the same protocols on the server as you do on your client. They have to have a way to "talk" to each other.

    Have you tried installing the Microsoft Client Services for NetWare? As I remember it is fairly limited but does work if all you want is a connection to get files to and from the server.

    You already have the IPX/SPX protocol installed so this will sit on top of those.

    Install it via the properties for you LAN card, choose install and it is under Client.

    This will get you access without installing the Novell Client.
