I need assistance on getting a new Novell 5x server to recognize a USB floppy drive. We are migrating from an old IBM netfinity to a new IBM systemx 3500. In the final phases of the migration it askes to copy files from one server to the other and to do it via the A: drive. The old netfinity has an A: but the new systemx 3500 does not. We bought a USB A drive and attached it to the new server and rebooted. DOS recognizes the A: drive but Netware does not. Does anyone know how to get NetWare to recognize this floppy drive? IN later versions of Netware 6.5 there is a lfvmount command to mount USB devices. HELP !!!!

    Does your NetWare version honor the DOS SUBST command? If it does, you might be able to fake it into believing that a substitute directory is the A: drive. I've used SUBST to load files from an install CD onto a fake D: drive before. The install code had the D: drive hard-coded, but another piece of hardware already had the drive letter. From a DOS command line, run SUBST /? for help. It's a very simple, but useful and nearly forgotten command... if DOS works. Tom
