Just installed some XP Pro machines in a Novell environment. Odd thing is neither files or directories can be deleted. An error message comes up stating that the files is in use or the user has no privileges to delete the file. The files cannot be moved either. This is only on the XP machines; the 98 and 2000 machines have no problems. LOg the same user in on one of the 98/2000 machines, the same files can be deleted. If you log into Novell as Administrator, with full rights for everything, the files can be deleted. Help! Thanks.

What type of local account do they have on the Windows 2000 and XP machines. Which groups do they belong to locally on the machine.

I assume you're talking about files and directories on a drive mapped to a Novell server? Or are you talking about files and directories on the local machine.

In either case make sure you have the latest version of the Novell Client installed on the computer - which for XP is version 4.9
