it worked, so far;-)
Ok, here is the scenario.  at&t corporate network.  mixed pc's, macs,
sparcs and x-terms.  All the pc's needed chameleon installed, using the
gazillion copies we had bought.  So, I figured out how/where chameleon
stored its serial # and that it asks again if the # is corrupt.
Set my machine up as wfw server, cause I didn't feel like using novell.
(did i mention we were using appletalk, NFS, novell, and wfw?  fun)
go to target machine, set up netcard + wfw networking if not already done.
connect to my machine.  grab chameleon files, and make needed ini changes.
insert correct serial number.
installed and working perfectly.  Much better+faster than swapping 4 disks
course, there was also SHERPA
