In the "ZENworks Cool Solutions Q&A Collection" there was this question:

Screen Savers secured by NW passwords

There is a registry setting that you can set:

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\ control\PwdProvider\SCRSAVE]
"Description"="Windows Screen Saver with Novell Password"
"ProviderPath"="c:\\windows\\SYSTEM\\nwpasswd.dll"
"UseMasterKey"=hex:01,00,00,00
"ChangePassword"="PPChangePassword"
"GetPasswordStatus"="PPGetPasswordStatus"

This will use the NetWare password for the screensaver password.
