Facility to change passwords on multiple servers

I've been lumbered with the task of supplying a help desk utility to set a user's password over multiple netware servers (v3.12).  The User is not guaranteed to exist on all of the servers, although obviously the UserId will be the same.

Ideally I would like to write this "minor" utility myself. I have a copy of the Netware SDK, but the help file gives no indication on how the calls should tie together, or in what sequence. There don't seem to be any relevant samples. It seems to me that what I want to do will probably entail only calling about 4 or 5 functions, but I am clueless as to where to start.

I had a look at JRB utilities, but my company is too tight-fisted to pay the reg. fee, and we only need one of the utilities out of the whole suite anyway (setpword).

Therefore the utility would:
1) Search for all the Netware Servers on the network
2) Attempt to set the password for a certain UserId

Anyway, if you can make any suggestions I would be extremely grateful,

Cheers, Ian Wilson.
