    Have a Gateway computer I'm trying to connect to a Novell network. All cards have been removed except for the Display and network card. Netware client is loaded and is the default login. However, it continues to default to the windows login.

    Once at the desktop.. I can connect to the network via network neighborhood which tells me the network card is working.. but when I reboot.. it defaults back to the windows login. Any ideas??

    Go to Start>Settings>Control Panel>Network>Add>Client>Novell.
    Select the client for the version of Novell you are using, 3.x or 4.x and above. You may have to do some config for preferred server etc. I havent touched Novell in a while.

    I assume you are already running IPX/SPX. If it keeps defaulting to a Windows Login, try removing Client for Microsoft Networks.

    I am running ipx/spx. And I already specified a preferred server and a first network login drive of f: and I have "enable login script" checked.

    Not sure what else I'm missing.. I've configured a million win95 machines. I'm assuming win98's are very similar. I can't figure out why it won't default to the netware client login instead of the windows login..

    And even more strange.. why once I'm in windows.. I can get to the network via network neighborhood. :confused:
