I would appreciate anyone's help with my questions!
I am faced w/having to get a new network--I had to get a new workstation and I can't find ANYONE to help me add this new workstation on to my current network. My current network is an ancient dedicated server running Novell 4.1 w/4 work stations & a print server. It was originally used in a medium sized company and I inherited it for free (HA...now it's not worth the headaches!!)
I want to go to something simple---like an easy peer to peer ...maybe even without a print server...I'll only need one internet connection....it may even be just dial up.
I don't ever anticipate having more than 5 total workstations...security is not a problem and speed is really not an issue.
I am by no means computer literate.....after I down the Novell network and switch to peer to peer, how do I get all the files/info from the current server to my new network??
Do I just disable the Novell and run the current server as a workstation?
Other than a few "package" programs like Excel, Word, an Image Editor, and Quark...the main programming is a large DOS based program that was custom programmed for the previous owner (I inherited it--or should they have paid me to inherit it??
Thanks so much for any thoughts/comments/suggestions!
Have a wonderful weekend!
