Installed AutoCAD2000 on an NT server with W95 as users. got the error
message:
'bad argument type stringp nil' for each lisp program (including
acad.lsp, acaddoc.lsp etc).
when removed all *.lsp program - no error. added a single line lisp
program and the messages comes back.

Jacob,

Have you installed Network or Client deployments to these workstations?
If you are using Network deployments, try editing the startup Icon
Properties to a local "Start in" directory.

I have the same problem in a Novell 4.11 network install running on the
server using a network deployment/setup scheme as detailed in the
installation manual.

I changed the "start in" directory for the shortcut to: C:\ACAD2000 to point
to the local client directory but I still get the same error.
