How to get to files

I have an old Novell 4.11 server I am trying to off load a directory on.

The system starts up fine and goes to a backup utility. I type in the admin login and password and it moves forward. When I exit the backup utility I get

Server Name:

I've used Help to look at the commands. I think it is the Open command I can use to see a directory of the files. All seem to be there.

I can get into DOS and a C: prompt but the directories do not show there.

How do I get to the directory so I can off load the files?

RE: How to get to files

NetWare does not have much in the way of a usable interface. You only get core OS tools at the console. You need to load the client onto a Windows or DOS PC with a some type of network. Then you can copy files to the server, so long as you have enough disk space on a usable volume.
