    Hello people. Here is the situation. We have an old server running NetWare v3.12. Yes, it's as old as the hills. Yesterday, three of our computers suddenly did not have network access. The only thing we know that happened is the power went off to the building. However, the server is plugged into an APC machine which should have kept it running. Maybe that has nothing to do with it. There are six total machines which normally are attached to the server. Now, when we try to run our applications, which are located on the server, we get an error message that says "The drive or network that the shortcut refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and then try again." There is no f:\ drive on My computer. I am thinking that I have to access the server and possibly re-add users. I know that 3 computers were logged in under the same user. In fact it's the same three that lost access. Any suggestions?

    Hopefully Squashman will come along, I think he uses Netware, though probably not version 3! :D
