    I have recently upgraded from windows 2000 to xp sp2.

    Before the upgrade I uninstalled the client.

    Now after I install the client, the keyboard and mouse freeze when I
    hit anything on the keyboard, but the mouse works if I don't hit
    anything on the keyboard.

    The system was working fine under 2000.

    Its a duron 900, 128mb ram and 20gb hdd.

    To start with, you don't have near enough memory to run XP with a Novell
    client installed, and barely enough processor speed. I won't run anything
    less than 1400MHz and 256mb RAM on my workstations at the office. As for
    unistalling the client before upgrading, why? And finally, there *IS* no
    Novell Client 4.92. The current version is 4.91. I believe you are talking
    about 4.90 with SP2. If so, download the latest client from and try that.

    FWIW, I never do upgrades. I'd rather backup my data (network has tape, or
    network home folder, or PC has CD writer, etc.), erase the hard drive, and
    do a clean install. That way there are no conflicts caused by 1) problems
    with the original OS, 2) incompatibilities with the existing software.
