Installation

By EricM ·
I am planning to install IntraNetWare on one of my servers. I have made a DOS partition of 100MB and the rest of the 4GB hard drive is unused. I have not installed Netware in a long time and unfamilar as to how to proceed from here. What do I need to put on the DOS partition other than CD-Rom drivers? and what should the autoexec.bat and config.sys files have in them. Is there any where I can go to obtain say like a white paper that can walk me through this?

If it's 5.0 or newer, just put the CD in the CDROM, and boot from it. You'll be walked through the install from there.

Otherwise, you'll want to use DOS 6.11 (NOT the pseudo DOS that came with Win9x, the install will fail) and the drivers to getyour CDROM up and running. Start the install, and you'll have no problems from there.

Don't use "Windows" DOS for IntraNetWare (4.11 I presume?), use "real" DOS (www.bootdisk.com might help), otherwise your installation will most likely hang.
All you need is access to your CD drive, so a bootable partition with SCSI or IDE drivers, and MSCDEX is needed. Any NetWare installation will take care of the autoexec.bat file, config.sys should have something like "files=20" or so, and not much more - certainly no memory management things..
If you want a proper step-by-step procedure,http://www.novell.com/documentation is the best place to look.

By the way, it would be very handy if you had the NetWare drivers (as recent as possible please) ready in a directory in C:, or on a diskette, and that you know where exactly they arelocated (as in A:\netware\4.x\disk or so)

Good luck and have fun!
