Novell has released a beta patch for the Windows 95/98 Client Version 3.21.
It's supposed to fix the file locking problem for Microsoft Office products
and it also seems to work for Autocad R14, and 2000. I've been running it on
a few test people for a few days and so far it has not created any *.AC$ or
*.TMP files on the network drives, and they are not getting any file lock
read only open errors. Check it out, the link is;
http://support.novell.com/search/ff_index.htm Enter the filename
95321PT2.EXE. This file contains "CLIENT32.NLM", I renamed my existing file
in C:\Novell\Client32\Client32.NLM to Client32.OLD and copied this new file
in it's place and rebooted. Try it out and let me know if it works for you.
