Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

As some of you know, I like to play with old versions of Novell NetWare. Some time ago I was lucky enough and got a complete boxed copy of NetWare 2.2.

A scan of one of the manuals that are included in the boxed copy

Of course I want to do a proper scan and dump of this for BetaArchive. For now I cannot do this, because this release contains an 800k Mac-formatted disk (called MACUTIL) that I can not dump.
Also, this release contains a huge amount of manuals and other stuff that I will have to scan. As I do have a very limited amount of time for things like that at the moment, I do not want to invest it in a release that is incomplete.

Still, as NetWare 2.2 is pretty rare these days, I want to give you a release of the disks that I did dump (By rare I mean: I have never seen it for offer in years and I have never seen it released anywhere on the internet. Also someone on this forum was looking for it in 2008 and he did not get it till today).

Besides the software that you would run on Mac-clients, this release should be complete.

For those who do not know: NetWare 2.2 is the last version of NetWare 286 that was ever released. It was released about two years after the first version of NetWare 3.0 (NetWare 386) was released.

But that is enough talking by me, here is the Mega link:

Hopefully, someone of you has the same amount of fun with these things, as I do :)

A proper scan of this to accompany the floppy images would be great. You don't need to scan every page of course but at least front/back covers and any additional stuff would be great.

I will do a complete scan of it sooner or later. For now my main concern is how I could dump the 800k floppy.


//Offtopic: If anyone knows about an old Apple machine that usually goes for ultra-cheap on eBay, please PM me about it! I have no experience with these things and the prices they go for.

I am guessing you wouldn't entertain the idea to loan the package to a member with a kryoflux device?

Probably I might do that in the future, but right now, I do not want to do that.
