2007 DST Changes
Per Marcel Cox's post of Fri, 23 Feb 2007 00:40:32 -0800 in novell.support.netware.5x.administration-tools (Subject: Re: dst changes on nw 5.0)
NetWare 5.0 only comes with Java 1.1.7 (or something like that). You are out of luck there. However unless you are running any special java based software on your server, you might not care.
Room for Corrections
Looking forward to the sysops' notes on this page.
