    Can someone get me some steps on how to install the netbui & ipx/spx portocols on to a windows 2003 server? It's a long story but they are needed to get a current setup to work.

    Honestly, if you have Novell 4.x or above, installing TCP/IP on that is easier than trying to install IPX/SPX and Netbeui on Win2K3. I don't think Win2K3 even supports Netbeui any more.

    Control panel, Network Connections, properties, Install, Client, Client Services for Netware. That will get IPX/SPX, but like the guru said, don't think NetBUI is available on 2003.

    Microsoft doesn't ship Windows 2003 with NetBEUI and doesn't support the protocol in the OS.

    However, if you require NetBEUI, you can install the version supplied on the Windows XP installation CD-ROM in the \valueadd\msft\net\netbeui subfolder. Copy the nbf.sys file into the \%systemroot%\system32\drivers directory, copy netnbf.inf into the \%systemroot%\inf\ directory, then open network connection properties and click Install to add NetBEUI.
