Like many people, when I add new XP(SP2)PCs to my Netware 5 LAN, there are
immediate gripes about how long it takes to access the network drives,
delayed file access time, other words SLOW.

I have seen many postings. Some say to use a certain client, then others
say that didn't work, etc.. I have not seen a definitive answer as to
what the problem and fix really is. I saw one really promising thread
but the end result was said to have been a bad NIC in the server.
Surely everyone all over the world that adds XP to their LANs are not
having bad server NICs. There are just too many complaints of the same
type for that.

Does anyone know how to solve this mystery?

Thanks for any info.
