I hope I'm not insulting you all by bringing up the six
letter word "Novell".   I have a need to access the data
from a database housed on a Novell server.  All I want
to do is mount the Novell filesystem on my Solaris 2.5.1
server and use the data in Solaris analysis programs.

Samba works great for me with PCs and I thought I heard 
there was some work going on for Novell.  How far away is
this feature  or will it ever be.   Most Novellites
would purchase a module to do, but we are not looking at
our own system, it is a customer's system and we will
be analysing the customer's data.  Sun and other vendors
are dropping their support of this software.  I'm forced
to look elseware and I don't want to go to Novell for the

It doesn't have to be freeware, it just has to work and be
supported if we need it.

My opinions and remarks are mine alone and not those of others.

Don't assume that I know what I'm talking about.  I just walk around here
talking like I do. :-)
