Agreed. NetServer is great. Be aware, though, that you must have the MS
Networking client installed on NetServer client PCs. And, for Win9x, the MS
networking client user ID must match an existing OS/400 user profile name
(otherwise, you'll need to use NetServer's guest user ID--which sorta
defeats the purpose of authorities over the IFS). NT Server and NT
Workstation don't have this limitation.
