The property was purposefully removed but the registry can be edited to give the same results:
HKey_local_machine \ Network \ Novell \ System Config \ Netware DOS Requester \
A Key called Show Dots should be created here if it does not already exist. Add a new String Value called 0 (not O the letter, the numeral zero - 0) and the Value Data of "0" should be ON.
There are no specific problems which caused the removal of Show Dots from the parameter list, just an attempt to simplify and remove infrequently used pieces.
