SYMPTOM

CHKDSK is not compatible with Stacker 4.0 drives.

SOLUTION

Overwrite the CHKDSK.EXE file on NWDOS directory with the new CHKDSK.EXE
file.

This version of CHKDSK.EXE includes a /NS command line parameter that you
can use to instruct CHKDSK not to do internal Stacker checking. This can
be used so that CHKDSK is compatible with Stacker 4.0 drives.

SYMPTOM

Speed issues NWCDEX CD-ROM extension driver are occurring.

SOLUTION

Overwrite the NWCDEX.EXE file on NWDOS directory with the new NWCDEX.EXE
file.

This is a German version of NWCDEX that can help with some speed issues
with NWCDEX CD-ROM extension driver. This file also fixes some other
minor issues.

SYMPTOM

Users are experiencing problems with the DPMS.EXE file that ships with
Novell DOS 7.

SOLUTION

This DPMS.EXE file is a more current version of the DPMS.EXE file than
the one that ships with PERSONAL NetWare or Novell DOS 7 (PNW or NWDOS7).

SYMPTOM

Users are experiencing loss of characters and speed of transmission
during modem communications.

SOLUTION

Use the SETFIFIO.EXE utility. This utility allows the user to set the
16550 FIFO buffers to 1, 4, 8, or 14 bytes. This is only possible on a
16550 UART chip. This affects the speed of data transmission on serial
ports.

The higher value (up to 14) the better the speed of transmission. This
can solve both speed problems and some problems with a loss of characters
during modem communications.

SYMPTOM

EMM386.EXE update fixes a possible problem with NE2100 cards, also fixes
problem with second DMA controller on PS/2 and compatible machines when
channels 5, 6 or 7 are selected.

SOLUTION

Overwrite the EMM386.EXE file on NWDOS directory with the new EMM386.EXE
file.

SYMPTOM

HIMEM.SYS update fixes some EMS page frame problems.

SOLUTION

Overwrite the HIMEM.SYS file on NWDOS directory with the new HIMEM.SYS
file.

SYMPTOM

With new MEMMAX.COM, only the primary command processor can now change
the memory state. (It can't be changed by a secondary command processor,
such as a DOS shell).

SOLUTION

Overwrite the MEMMAX.COM file on NWDOS directory with the new MEMMAX.COM
file.

SYMPTOM

Accessing the Stacker volume would cause EMM386 protection exceptions to
occur if users had Stacker 4.0 on their hard disk and they upgraded to
Novell DOS 7.

SYMPTOM

Problem with a double \\ and NetWare 4.x LOGIN.EXE.

For example: "D:\\filename.ext"

SYMPTOM

Problem that was related to corrupt directory entries that caused the
system to read beyond the end-of-chain.

SYMPTOM

Problem with the key combinations ALT-T and ALT-Q that did not work
correctly with the Colorado Tape software.

SOLUTION

XCOPY the new IBMDOS.COM to root directory using /HR switch, then use
ATTRIB -A +R +S +H to make the file system read only hidden file.

Example:

"XCOPY A:IBMDOS.COM C:\IBMDOS.COM /HR"
"ATTRIB -A +R +S +H C:\IBMDOS.COM"
