GetUserID, NwCalls.dll, NTWS, Netware 3.12

In Windows 3.x, logging into Netware allowed the use of a "NWCalls.dll", which would give the Netware login id of the current user. Using NT Workstation and Client Services for Netware, the Netware login id is no longer available. I understand there is an API to get the NTWS id, but I need to get the login id of the Netware server (they could be different.) Is this possible using CSNW, or by using Intranetware for NT? The Intranetware is very new, and could be too new to take a chance on (unless someone has good things to say about it...)

I always just got the drive letter and used the WNetGetConnection() to findout the login name. It's a Win32 call that's on all Windows platforms.  It makes more sense, too, because the user could be using several different network resources, so a single Netware API call wouldn't make a whole lot of sense here.  You can also find a possible NetWare version of doing this on their DeveloperNet site.  Just go to Novell.com and do a search on NWGetUserID, or NWGetDriveInformation.
