I get the impression that you have had problems with your network in the   
past.  It has been my experience that Novell NetWare is virtually   
bulletproof after it is implemented.  Not true?

Happy New Year.

Booth,

We do this (I guess) with token ring. The AS/400 is just on the network,   
and
we needn't log in to the network to access the /400. It's on a netware
network though, not NT, and I suspect things will stop completely if the
server crashes. It's been very stable lately though (knock on wood), and   
I
haven't had an "opportunity" to see for sure.
