Windows for Workgroups fully supports NetBIOS-based applications (such as Lotus Notes). NetBIOS functionality within Windows for Workgroups is provided by the NDIS NetBEUI protocol or transport. Novell NetWare offers NetBIOS support by using a terminate-and-stay- resident (TSR) program called NETBIOS.EXE. To enable NetBIOS support under Novell NetWare, NETBIOS.EXE must be loaded.
NOTE: NETBIOS.EXE is not provided with Windows for Workgroups. If you have an earlier installation of NetWare on your machine, you should be able to use the NETBIOS.EXE TSR program available from that installation.
Using the Novell NETBIOS.EXE TSR program with Windows for Workgroups requires some manual modifications to your AUTOEXEC.BAT and SYSTEM.INI files. The following steps enable NETBIOS.EXE to support NetBIOS across the MSIPX transport.
NOTE: Make sure that NETBEUI is at LANA0. If you have IPX (Novell) at LANA0, MSD cannot recognize NETBIOS. Moving NETBEUI to LANA0 and IPX to LANA1 and using NET START NETBEUI enables MSD to recognize NETBIOS.
