Do you know what the big differences are between 6.0 and 6.5 as far as
supported chipsets, processors, drivers?
I have checked on the cost to go to nw6.5 and my boss says it isn't
prohibitive, but he doesn't have the last word so we will see.
I would perfer to go to 6.5 just to be on a supported OS.

IF you want to install your netware 6.0 on modern hardware (for instance
Dell x9xx series of servers), then you are probably in trouble is for most
modern hardware, you would need at least NetWare 6.5 SP5 to be able to
install at all.
So your biggest first obstacle will be to find hardrware where you are
*sure* that NetWare 6.0 will run on it. You will probably have
difficulties in finding hardware manufacturers that will give you officiel
NetWare 6.0 support given that Novell themselves discontinued NetWare 6.0
support some time ago.
