7. MAKING YOUR NETWORK COMPATIBLE WITH MS-DOS 5.0
7.1 MS-DOS Shell and Networks
Most network software won't work correctly if you start it from a
MS-DOS Shell command prompt. Start your network before starting MS-DOS
7.2 AT&T StarGROUP
If your AT&T StarGROUP version does not support MS-DOS 5.0, contact
your AT&T representative or the AT&T National Systems Support Hotline
for information about required modifications or upgrades.
7.3 PC-NFS 3.0
If you use PC-NFS 3.0 with MS-DOS Shell, MS-DOS Shell may display more
drives than you have currently enabled. To prevent this, use the
PC-NFS /d switch to specify the number of drives you are using. For
more information, see your PC-NFS documentation.
If you can't use the COPY or XCOPY command on PC-NFS 3.01, contact
your vendor to get an updated version of the PCNFS.SYS device driver.
7.4 TOPS Network
If your system is a TOPS workstation, the MS-DOS Shell MOVE command
may not work.
Don't use the LOADHIGH command with a TOPS network.
