Novell Client 4.9 SP2: Initialization, Login and Settings

This excellent AppNote article by Earle Wells in NTS describes the operation of the Novell Client, from boot-up of the machine, through the user login. It discusses how the Client uses defined protocols to locate resources and authenticate a user. It also contains a comprehensive listing of the various settings available to control the behavior of the Client.

Keep this AppNote handy for future reference.
