Every now and then, I feel compelled to write a column that isn't much more than a disguised list of leads to products, documents or freebies I hope some of you will find really interesting.

Do you still run NetWare 3.x? Lots of folks do. Finally (only three years too late, but that's another matter), Novell is shipping an almost bulletproof Novell Upgrade Wizard 2.1 for migrating both the NetWare 3 bindery and file system to an existing intraNetWare (NetWare 4.1). In the process, all bindery objects are upgraded to NDS objects. Free at www.novell.com/int ranetware/upgrade/wizard.html. If, on the other hand, you're thinking of upgrading to NT, I recommend you check out the 21-slide, on-line seminar/presentation on the "how and why" of NT 4.0/NetWare integration and migration. www.microsof t.com/ithome/resource/seminar/default.htm. As you'd expect, there's also a good deal of information including a downloadable white paper on interoperability with NetWare on Microsoft's NT server site at www.microsoft. com/ntserver/guide/netwareinterop.asp. For starters, you'll want to know that the NetWare "supervisor" right is named "full control" in NT and that NetWare's "access control" right translates into "change permissions" in NT.
