Old NetWare 3.12 work fine with new hardware, but I need 4.x with NDS. NetWare on Linux have new futures...

I am not sure that mars_new will give you NDS. I don't think it is that advanced.

I have good memories with NetWare and I have today new solutions with NetWare 4 - (I have too SAMBA for NetWare with pure IP)

Sorry but this stuff might be fun but was EOL years ago.

I try compile Mars_Nwe with SME. I have bootroms for new networks cards and I can add this files for SME new distrubutions when SME work fine with mars_nwe.

If you manage to get it running then great, but I think you will struggle unless you are a good C coder. Even then I don't think you will get NDS.

Have a look here for Netware 4/5/6 ISOs. I  have no idea where you would get a licence key. Ebay or Novell I guess.


Good luck.
1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.

It's fine to have a hobby but at some stage the horse carcass needs to be left in peace.
