add a mac to a novell environment

I would like to know step by step, how to add a user to a mac, and have the mac access resources on a novell network. the mac runs osx tiger, does not have novell. I have full admin rights to the mac. the admin account was set up by a predacessor and was able to accomplish this. i have no mac experience but am very versed in pcs and novell. i cannot find the equivalents of control panel on the mac.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The equivalent of the control panel is the System Preferences. Pull down the Apple Menu from the top left corner of the screen.
