I was just told by a DELL representative that the next revision of their
server hardware coming in January will not support Netware 6.5 unless it
is run in a VM. He also said that this will also be the case with other
large vendors like Compaq and IBM. According to the representative this
is because Novell will no longer be developing new drivers for Netware 6.5.

I'm trying to get the word from Novell on it but none of my contacts
seem to be in the talking mood.

Has anyone heard of this? I thought that Netware 6.5 support was good
until 2010? We've been counting on that because we aren't ready to
migrate to SuSe OES yet. We are waiting until it supports everything we
are used to with Netware including mindless initial install.
