Thak you for your response. This may work well.
Do you know if thier is a version of SAMBA that works with SCO Unixware
7 ??? I don't recall what is on that machine - I think in the past
someone tried to get SAMBA or some sort of filesharing to work and could
not. I have to get the machine to boot so I can see what is on it.
This could work.
Above all, I must follow the Prime Directive - DON'T SPEND ANY MONEY
!!! Windows 2003 CALS cost an arm and a leg. I never was a real
fan of NT 4.0 either.
