File Permissions on Win2K3 Server

I cannot save files from a client PC to a Win2K3 server.  The target folder on the server has permissions for both the "Everyone" group, and for my personal domain account ( which has Administrative rights) set to "Full Control".  

The Win2K3 server is joined to a Windows domain.  The Windows domain operates "underneath" a Novell network.  The server has no Novell components installed.  

The client PC's have Novell clients installed, and are joined to the Windows domain.  When I login on a client PC, the Novell client logs me into both the Novell network and the Windows domain.  From the client PC, I am able to drill down through My Network Places\Entire Network\Microsoft Windows Network\Domain Name\Server Name and see the folders and open them.

The same problem exists if I map a drive to the target folder.

The client PC's have either Win2K or WinXP installed.  The client PC's and the Win2K3 server have all MS Critical Security updates through Sept. installed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
