how do I create a user account to access novell on an Imac?

I have created an account on the IMAC. where my challenge comes is how to get it to access network resources. I am starting at system preferences but I cannot find how to configure attibutes to an account. A user is configured in Novell, but no Novell software is on the IMAC. The administrator account does work and accomplishes this, but I want to set up a user to access network resources without handing over full administrative capabiliteis on the IMAC. How can I set up a user? I have begun in the system preferences and created the user and password. How do I add access to files on a novell server?

I've tried to rephrase and reask the question to be more precise in what I am asking. I'll take the blame for not being clear. What I am trying to do, is start with the apple, having the Novell portion in place. I am becoming frustrated because with PCs, I can right click or go to places of familiarity and assign or change attributes. Apple does not have that or I cannot find it. The study does have a lot of info, so much I become more confused, but I cannot simplify the situation or begin with what I know and apply it to apples. I want to take what I know with how to set up accounts on PCs as far as assigning rights to files and folders and do that beginning with the account set up on an IMAC. I've asked my question 3 different ways, and got the same article referenced as the solution. I've read it several times and still can't make heads or tails out of account set up in an IMAC to access network resources and printers. I find apples impossible to administer for network use.

What you need is this. http://prosofteng.com/products/netware_client_x_info.php

This is the Novell Netware client for OS X. Here is the spec sheet for the product http://prosofteng.com/docs/NTW_Datasheet.pdf

In conjunction, you should look as getting an xServe to Manage your Macs if you have quite a number.  The  xServe would be just for managing the system and policies and not necessarily for sharing files and printers.
