Error reading source file

A good friend of mine told me that he wanted to install netware 5.1 on
his laptop. yes you read it correctly on his laptop. so i want ahead and
tried to install netware. but dr-dos tells me "Error reading source
file" or something like that. the file that has trouble reading is the
server.exe file.
so what do i do now? it is also going to run under wireless.



one last thing, the laptop  is a HP nx6110 notebook from 2005.

Install, as in "overwriting whatever is on that laptop"? If so, just boot 
from the SERVER CD or a DRDOS-formatted floppy.

Novell has a new enhancement request system, 
or what is now known as the requirement portal.

That generally means its a media error - I presume you're using a CD-ROM? 
If its a high-speed drive, get the media burn at a low speed (such as 4x) 
and sometimes that helps.
