    Ok, according to Microsoft, there is no Netware Client for Windows XP Home Edition. Does anyone know if there's a workaround of some type for this to allow an XP Home to login to Netware Server?

    Sure!

    I thought I saw a new edition of Novell Client the other day - 4.82 for XP - or was that only for XP Pro???

    let me check..

    You can get it here:

    novell clients

    But I'm not sure about xp:home compatibility. It will probably work. Novell didn't support ME specifically, but the client worked anyway - from what I read, the client seems like it will work, but its just not supported.

    Thanks! I'll give it a shot. The only stuff I could find said neither Microsoft or Novell were providing clients for the Home Edition. But - there's always a work around!!!
    :D

    Worked like a charm! (With the exception of some of the commands in the login script that XP apparently no longer recognizes - aw well!)

    Thanks again!

    Cool! Good to know since we'll probably be getting XP users on our network next semester...
