NW 4 with Linux or DOSEMU

Hi

I'm trying to access a Netware 4 server from Linux, either
natively or within DOSEmu. If I try to connect natively, I can't figure out what I should specify as my server login name, since my full NDS path is bruce.96.pupils.users.media-centre.westerford (yes I know it is bloody long). I've tried just bruce, the whole thing, and CN=bruce.OU=96.OU=...O=westerford. The first two don't work and the last one is too long for ncpmount.

If I try to get things going with DOSEmu, pdether and novell_hack then I can get to the point where I can see the F: drive (I can dir it) but if I try to run login or anything else I get General Failure reading drive NETWORK (who's General Failure and why's he trying to read NETWORK :-).

I don't need anything really fancy, I mostly need it to copy stuff I create in Linux onto my account or vice versa.

Any ideas?
TIA
Bruce

There isn't a tremendous amount of NW4 support in the Linux world yet.

If this was a NW3.x server you wouldn't be having these problems.  

One thiing to ask is whether or not your NW4 server is running BINDERY EMULATION.  That makes a NW4 machine look like an NW3.x machine to "older" clients.  IF that is that case, then you will be able to access your NetWare server with ncpmount.  

As for native NW4 tools, I think you know probably know more about them than I do.

I've heard about this bindery emulation thing, and when I get a chance I'll find out (The old server was, but it died a few months back and I don't know about the new one). Otherwise I can arrange for it to be added.

Either way, what username should I feed the 3.x lookalike? Just bruce, given that the NW4 server uses a huge path? Or something else?
