Here is a guide to creating a CD image that will simultaneously install a NetWare 5.1 server with the latest Support Pack.

Both the NetWare 5.1 CD and the Support Pack contain directory paths that exceed the DOS limits. You should create directories to hold these files at the root-level on your local drive or on a NetWare volume that accepts longer paths with long filenames.

1.0 Creating a NetWare 5.1/Support Pack Image

To create a CD that lets you install NetWare 5.1 and the Support Pack concurrently, complete the following steps:

  1. On a local drive or a NetWare server volume, create a \NW51CD directory at the root level.
  2. Copy the all of the contents of the NetWare 5.1 CD to \NW51CD.
  3. If your NetWare 5.1 CD is English Only, create the following subdirectories within the \PRODUCTS directory:
    • - \MASV
    • - \NICI\STARTUP

    Move the following files from the \STARTUP directory to the directories as indicated:

    • - MASV.NLM to PRODUCTS\MASV
    • - CCS.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - DOMXENG.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP (Copy this file only if you have the domestic NetWare 5.1.)
    • - EXPXENG.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - XIM.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - XMGR.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - XSUP.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
  4. On a local drive or a NetWare server volume, create a \NW51SP directory.
    • - If you downloaded the Support Pack from the Internet, extract the Support Pack to the \NW51SP directory.
    • - If you have the Support Pack on CD, copy all of the contents of the CD to the \NW51SP directory.
  5. Rename the \NW51SP\PRODUCTS\NDS8 directory to \NW51SP\PRODUCTS\NDS873.
  6. Remove the following files:
    • \NW51SP\INSTALL\TARS\NI.ZIP
    • \NW51SP\INSTALL\TARS\PRODUCTS.ZIP
  7. Select all the files and directories in \NW51SP and copy them to \NW51CD.
  8. If you are using an International (Multilanguage) NetWare 5.1 CD, we recommend that you download the NICI v1.5.6 or later files from http://www.novell.com/download. Then extract the .EXE file and copy the files to the following \NW51CD subdirectories:
    • - CCS.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - DOMXENG.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP (Copy this file only if you have the domestic NetWare 5.1.)
    • - EXPXENG.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - XIM.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - XMGR.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - XSUP.XLM to PRODUCTS\NICI\STARTUP
    • - NICISDI.XLM to SYS\SYSTEM
    • - SASDFM.XLM to SYS\SYSTEM

    NOTE: Strict export laws restrict the use of NICI files in certain countries. Before downloading and installing any NICI files, ensure that you are downloading the correct version for your installation locale.

  9. Delete the following files and subdirectories:
    • \NW51CD\NISETUP.IPS
    • \NW51CD\SPACK.IPS
    • \NW51CD\INSTALL8.BAT
    • \NW51CD\STARTUP\LONG.NAM
    • \NW51CD\SP subdirectory
    • \NW51CD\TOOLS subdirectory
  10. Move the file \SYS\SYSTEM\SMDR.NLM to the \PRODUCTS\SMS\SYSTEM directory.
  11. Extract the files in NWOVLY1.EXE to the \NW51CD directory.

    If you do not have NWOVLY1.EXE, you can download it from http://support.novell.com/filefinder.

    The \NW51CD directory now contains an image of NetWare 5.1 and the Support Pack.

  12. (Optional) Create a Concurrent Install CD by copying the files and directories in \NW51CD to a CD.

2.0 Installing the NetWare 5.1/Support Pack Image

Install NetWare 5.1 by following the instructions for upgrading or installing a new NetWare 5.1 server in the NetWare 5.1 documentation available on the Documentation CD that came with NetWare 5.1 or on the Internet at http://www.novell.com/documentation/lg/nw51/docui/index.html.
