Maybe you're thinking of the problem Novell networks had with Windows 95?
Since Windows 95 answers the Netware client GetNearestServer call with a
packet claiming to be a Netware server, it can seriously confuse Netware
clients if there is no other server on the LAN - the client will time out
trying to log into the 95 machine (after all, it said it was a server...)
and then fail. Even if there is a true server on the network, some clients
will still get the 95 packet first. Don't know if this has been fixed yet.
