Solved How to fake Lastdrive command in WinXP?

Specs: windows nt 4 server
I have a Dos based network running Netware Lite 1.1
I have successfully installed the NetWare client on win 98 system using Client32 software.
I'm trying to install the client on a Win XP but I have a problem with the net.exe command,
It needs to see at least 2 network drives (and win xp dos not use or support the Lastrdive command) I get this massage: " You must have tow available drives to run the net utility. Increase LASTDRIVE in config.sys and reboot or delete drive mapping"
I've tried to load the net command in compatibility mode and insert Lastdrive=z in the config.nt, , but with no success. Any idea who to fool the program into thinking there is plenty of drive mappings?

I suspect that you need to use the Windows Netware client rather than the DOS one.

I did use client32 for windows 98 and client32 for win xp.
(the 32 means that the client is for 32 bits systems) not 16bits.
But in order to login the DOS server I need to run the net.exe command to map the servers network drives.
Client32 dos not have the necessary tools to login the network. so I'm forced to use the DOS tools and the program I'm running is also DOS based program.

✔ Best Answer
The Windows client should allow you to log on to a Netware Network (unless things are different in Netware Lite), but you may need a non-Home edition of XP (as with Windows networking).

Note that client32.exe is not a Windows client.
