The Linux kernel does not natively support mounting Novell NetWare 4/5 volumes.

SOLUTION: Use the opensource ncpfs project at:

Build it and use ncpmount to authenticate yourself and mount the volume. If you're using IPX, be sure to build IPX support as a module, and not directly into the kernel - otherwise things just don't work well.
