How do I load DOS from a Server Console?

Well, the bad news is that you can't really access DOS from the server console. What you can do is load a utility that will allow you to access the server volumes with DOS-like commands, ie copy, dir, delete, etc.

The best one is the "toolbox" utility, get it from support.novell.com. To use it, just "load toolbox" (actually, for 5.1 just toolbox should do if you've put it in sys:system); then tools to get the commands.

A very useful utility, BUT it can get you into trouble very quickly if you're not careful.

Another older one is JCMD, but never tried it with 5.x - Toolbox is OK with Netware 5.

Good luck.

Don't know for sure about SBS, but the "real" NW5.x comes with Netbasic:
LOAD NETBASIC
and then type
SHELL
Which will give you a DOS-like interface. Good enough to copy, delete or rename a file, things like that. To exit the shell type EXIT.

And if you are looking to edit a file, you can use edit.nlm and just specify the file (i.e c:\autoexec.bat).
