Does this happen when you issue function calls as well as commands?

Is there anything in the Novell system that requires use of the F5 key? It is
possible that when you type F5 to blank the command line, in order to issue your
command, you are running into a conflict with something in the Novell system.

If you know how to modify your keyboard file, search for your table= and then
search for 63=. You will probably find this:


Edit this so it says 63=ni,Q5,bc.

That might work.

Then again . . .

I assume that if you start with F8 and then load everything BUT the Novell drivers
things work as usual?
