SHUTDOWN POWER OFF MANAGEMENT CORRUPTION CONTROL
DIRECTORY LDB_DATA LDBDATA WIN98-SE
NO ONE CAN
ACCESS MY LANTASTIC RESOURCES ON MY FAST PENTIUM
3 OR PENTIUM 4 RUNNING WINDOWS 98-SE, BUT
I CAN ACCESS OTHER LANTASTIC SERVERS.
Newer P3 and P4 machines often have a CMOS
feature for a fast shutdown or similar feature.
This can cause a problem on some LANtastic
servers using Windows 98 SE. If the operating
system shuts down too quickly, the control
directory files under the c:\lantasti\win95\ldb_data
folder can become corrupted. Often, connecting
a network drive under Assign Drives in LANtastic
Custom Control Panel, will lockup, or cause
LANtastic to "Stop Responding".
If this scenario is suspected, test to see
if you can assign a network drive locally
at the server. If the problem does not occur
with a local drive redirection, but occurs
only when attempting to assign a drive from
another machine, then you may have a network
configuration or hardware issue. If the problem
occurs with a local drive redirection, try
the following solution.
1. In the Computer CMOS, disable the fast
shutdown or auto shutdown or power down option,
if listed. Often their is an option to enable
a 4 second wait before shutdown, and this
may work as well.
2. If there is no option to disable auto shutdown,
power down, etc, contact the computer or motherboard
manufacturer, there may be a way to disable
this feature on the motherboard.
3. You may also be able to disable Fast Shutdown
under the Windows 98 operating system itself.

in Windows 98" (Q187607) from support.microsoft.com
4. After Fast Shutdown has been disabled,
follow technote: TN3086. This refers to LANtastic
7.0 and Windows 95, but the restoration process
is identical under Windows 98 or 98SE.
