    Greetings,

    In trying to get a working setup for the future school year and vista we
    have run into a problem. we use novell to manage users and login however the
    vista novell version is not getting along with windows. we got vista to the
    point where it requires the user to type their login name and password
    however we cannot get novell to come up first for users to login and
    subsequentially create the windows account. has anyone else found a way
    around this problem?

    Novell does not have a Vista client yet.

    It sounds like they are in a production environment. It is not recommended
    to use beta software let alone a tech preview in a production environment.
    They should not be using Vista if they need to use the Novell client. They
    should investigate the downgrade rights for Vista and switch to XP until
    such time as Novell supports Vista.
