Files opening slowly after migration from Novell to 2003 server

Over the past two weeks, I have copied files from Novell to Windows 2003 Enterprise server.  I applied the proper rights, and replaced those rights to the child objects.  We are noticing that now the files are opening very slowly, even after replacing the rights to the child objects.  The workstations are Windows 2000, and we use Office 2003.  I am hopeing someone can shed some light on this problem.

Through additional testing I have noticed that the problem exists only for Office applications (we are running Office 2003 Suite) with a Novell 4.83 client.  Notepad, quicktime, etc. open properly.

After more time searching the net, I found information that pointed to the Novell client itself being the problem.  Once I uninstalled the client, and cleaned out the registry of major Novell entries, the problem was fixed - files open and save on a timely manner now.  Thank you for your help.
