Novell logon

  bigggles 20:50 17 Nov 2008

I work for a small charity, and we have inherited a few PCs from a local business who are upgrading. I hoped to connect these to our (Windows) network, but after XP loads I am confronted with the Novell logon page which the previous owners used. I can get to a local administrator logon, but neither the password nor OS disk were supplied with the machines. If I can reach the normal Windows logon I'm sure I can proceed from there.

Am I wasting my time trying to convert these machines to a Windows network? I am vaguely aware that Microsoft changed the PC donation rules a few years ago, but it seems a shame to scrap usable machines.

Hi bigggles

I have the same problem, I followed the link from lotvic but couldn't find a solution readily. Did you find one? If so would you share it with me.
