Why do you solve it that way? We use novell servers thru all our company and it is ABSOLUTELY normal, that we map network volumes to some driver letters. You can do it yourself too. You surely use damned MS client, ignoring NetWare login script, getting you into some data-loss risks, etc. Me, as a network admin - would not allow machine without proper Netware client on our network ... that's in regard to philosophy of Netware usage :-) now - why do you use backslashes? try: dir? %//Novell_server/accounts/GABILLON so ... I tried it and ... simply remove one slash at the beginning of your path ... dir? %/Novell_server/accounts/GABILLON will work, I can bet ;-) Cheers, -pekr-
