Good try but they trapped that too. You boot into Safe Mode and the Novell
login still comes up before you can get to the DOS prompt.

Hmmm. I wonder if I can boot from an old DOS 5.1 floppy? Trouble is I
probably can't run unc32.exe then because it will probably tell me it is a
different OS..

Can you use the F8 key to get the boot menu up before the Novell Log-in
screen comes up?

If so, boot in safe mode, go to the Novell directory (usually c:\Novell) and
run unc32.exe.

With Novell you are locked out of any Windows access. The first thing on
screen is a Novell login and if you can't get past this you've had it.

Any chance you can safe boot into the registery,and sort it from there.
Sometimes works. FF
