How do you setup a linux server so that it can be a client to a netware server,  I need to access data on a Novell Network from a cgi script for our intranet.

go to the /usr/src/linux, do a make config, select ipx support, but not the whole ipx networking, choose only for option one, after that, almost at the bottom of the list you can configure filesystems, configure your filesystem so that your linux host can mount netware volumes, it's after the smb filesystem i think.
After configuring do a : Make dep ; make clean ; make bzImage, and when it's finished go to the /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot
the copy the file bzImage to /boot as the file vmlinuz like (cp bzImage /boot/vmlinuz)
after doing this go back to the /usr/src/linux, and do a Make bzlilo, after that retart your pc and do a cat /proc/filesystems
you will see a list and there must be a filesystem to mount netware volumes, if you see this, your kernel is fully configured to mount netware volumes.

Do a "smbclient '\\hostname\volumename'
I think you must define -U (username) in the command line or else the netware server will not accept it, after doing that you will be promped to type the password, type the passwd and you're connected !

If this won't work, i will test here on our novell server !

Hope this helps a bit
