Greetings,
  I am new to Linux so bear with me.  I have installed RH 6.2.  I am trying to configure my Linux box as a Novell client. When I run the ipx_configure --auto_interface=on --auto_primary=on I get the following message:

ipx_configure: socket: Invalid argument

what am I doing wrong?

thank you!

Do you have the eth0 device running?  You can find out by running ifconfig.  You should see at least two entries, on that starts with 'lo' and another that starts with 'eth0'.  Post the output of ifconfig, lsmod, and the contents of /proc/net/ipx.  If you don't have the eth0 device up, that's the first step.   Usually it's just

ifconfig eth0 192.128.1.2

where the IP address is one that makes sense for your network.  Then try the ipx_configure command.

yes, I have the etho device running.

I ran the ifconfig command...it showed the two entries with no errors.

this is the out put from the lsmod command:

module   size   used by
ncpfs      31752  0 (unused)
....
epic100    10072  1  (autoclean)


as far as the /proc/net/ipx

the ipx does not exist...

Try 'insmod ipx'. Then see if ipx appears by running 'lsmod'. Then try the ipx_configure command.
