How do you create/delete or rename in Novell Netware 3.x

How do you create/delete or rename in Novell Netware 3.x

I need to find out how to create/delete or rename from a Novell Netware 3.x command prompt.  I have a database application that need to do nightly file maintenance, but cannot run while the backup is running.  The backup has the ability to do pre and post backup system commands and the data base utility can check for the existence of a file prior to running.  I wanted to make a file exist while the backup is running by creating the file or renaming a dummy file to it.  Then delete the file or rename it back to the dummy file name when the backup completes.  The database program will be watching for this temporary file.

Other suggestions are appreciated - Thanks Jeff
