I have a 3400, 48Mb RAM, OS8.1
Is it possible to configure the Novell Netware client 5.11 in such a way to allow me to dial-in to my network over a PPP connection and login to a Netware 4.1 server?  I keep receiving an error that my MacIPX is not configured properly.

There is no PPP client for Macintosh, that is capable of IPX-over-PPP, otherwise known as IPXCP  (IPX Control Protocol).

MacIPX will not help here.   The IPXCP protocol has to be negotiated during the PPP connection phase.

Unless your Netware Server supports Netware/IP protocol (then you could use a regular PPP client), there is no solution for this.

Richard
