Problem:

AUTOEXEC.NCF is one of the startup files for NetWare. In the default installation, and in most product installations thereafter, there are many entries in the script. Quite often people don't understand what each entry is and whether they can safely remove it or not.

Solution:

I've added a page to the Wiki which is an attempt to assist people with understanding what the lines are and in what situations they can be safely removed or remarked. This page may also be a good place to start noting some best practises regarding the content of AUTOEXEC.NCF.
