A Microsoft Windows 98 networking component for interoperability with Novell NetWare 4 servers running Novell Directory Services (NDS). If a computer running Windows 98 is running Client for NetWare Networks only, in Network Neighborhood the computer can recognize only bindery-based NetWare servers on the network, such as NetWare 3 and earlier servers and NetWare 4 servers running in bindery-emulation mode.
Computers running Microsoft Windows 95 and Windows 98 that are running File and Printer Sharing for NetWare Networks are also visible. If you install Service for NetWare Directory Services, the Windows 98 client can also view NDS objects in the current context in Network Neighborhood.
Service for NetWare Directory Services includes additional capabilities, including support for logon scripts on NDS servers. Administrators can also use the computer running Windows 98 to run NetWare 4 utilities that require NDS (such as the nwadmin tool or netadmin).
Use the Network utility in Control Panel to install Service for NetWare Directory Services on a computer running Windows 98.
