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).

I was just about to do a dump for my personal archive when I sadly figuered out that my copy of NetWare 4.11 is damaged. The first CD (most important one with the NetWare 4.11 operating system) gives me reading errors during the last 5% of the disk. It is damaged beyond repair; there is a scratch in the data layer (in the silver foil).

Still, I can offer to upload the other three CDs that come with it and that so far do not exist on the FTP along with scans of all CDs. Luckily we already have the first CD although it is an ISO-version only.

That would be nice, then we can at least add the proper dumps and scans to the release (after it's been verified that ours and yours are identical).

Thanks.

I will include the dump of the damaged disk. As the first ~580MB of 600MB were read just fine, it should be possible to verify if the releases are identical.

So it took me some time to complete this upload, mainly because I was a bit unsecure regarding labeling.

I labeled this release "Novell IntranetWare (1996) [Multilanguage]". The point is that 4.11 was not sold alone as Novell NetWare 4.11. Instead Novell decided to bundle it with some stuff (probably most important: their web server) and release it as "Novell IntranetWare".
Without a version number. Also there is no build number that I am aware of.

As far as I know they only did this with 4.11; so using no version number seems to be pretty accurate for me.

Still, I would be quite interested in how other people think about this!

get something like roadkil's unstoppable copier and if that copies all of the files without any corruption, then you can just maybe ignore those reading errors. idk if this is the same as floppies in the sense of reading errors but usually the beginning percentage of the disc needs to be read if you want to make sure you want your files uncorrupted while the last 5% not being read wouldn't do anything to the files
