You'd be better off asking this in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Netware/ but anyway have you added the correct namespace to the data volume?
>>To add long namespace support to a NetWare 4.11 or NetWare 4.2 server, at the server console, enter LOAD LONG, then enter ADD NAME SPACE LONG TO volumename. To add long namespace support to a NetWare 4.10 server, at the server console, enter LOAD OS2, then enter ADD NAME SPACE OS2 TO volumename.

Of course if it's just Macs that you have and no windows PCs you don't need long/os2 namespace.
