Just tried to bring up a NetWare 6.0 (I think, either that or 5.1)
server but it doesn't get past "Initializing System Resources..." - HELP!!!

This old server was working fine prior to being shutdown a few weeks
ago. While I was on holiday, someone put it in storage, and when I
tried to fire it up again today it would go as far as showing the
following 2 lines on the screen -

System Console
Initializing System Resources...

Trying to start it with "server -kf8" makes no difference, "server -ns
-na" adds 2 lines saying that it is starting without STARTUP.NCF and
AUTOEXEC.NCF and nothing else.

Any ideas??
