We just got a new computer at the office with Windows XP Home Edition (it's a small office and we do have one other computer w/the Home Edition and it works fine). I am trying to network this new computer and have gone to Control Panel - Network Connections - LAN Connection (which is enabled;we can get onto the Internet and get email; cannot access the network drives or printer) - right-clicked on "Properties" - hit the Install button under "this connection uses the following items" - highlighted Client - hit Add but can't find "Client service for Netware" to install. I've looked for it on the Windows XP CD (as suggested by someone) but honestly don't know what the file name is.
Can anyone help? Am I looking in the right place for the app? If so, do you know the name of the file? If not, any ideas where to go? I've tried the Novell website but honestly I haven't a clue. TIA!

XP Home is not meant to be used in a corporate LAN environment. It will not work as a Domain member in a Windows network but I am not sure of the implications for Netware.

We run Netware where I work but I have never tried installing the client on XP Home. Let me know how it works.

Have you tried the client from Novell or just the one from XP.

Most times I've needed to use the Novell since the native one didn't have all the features and capabilities that were required.

1. There is no "install" TCP/IP on XP. It's already there by default.
2. From his first post he can get to the Internet just fine.
3. The problem is at work he needs to get the Novell client working
