Netware 4.2 server

This is a continuation of the first post. Evidently the physical drive
cratered so the server is running off the mirrored drive. Is that how it can
find the files to boot because I would think the C drive is gone. When I put
a new drive in I was going to format it with a dos partition, but if I make
it the C drive will I then lose my mirrored drive or will I then be able to
copy it over to my new drive. The current drive is called a logical drive
and there doesn't seem to be any way to unmirror it and make it my main C:/

I always recommended that users have a separate and possible simple
IDE drive to bootup and run the \nwserver programs. (There are pro's
and con's but not appropriate to get into that here).

You probably then should be able to go into the Netware configuration
and see your existing drives which I assume will be SCSI drives.

Just as an aside I also recommended that the relevant files from the C
drive were copied onto a simple paralled port ZIP drive/disk.
