AFAIK, smb support won't help you for Novell access.  If you want 
to use linux as a Netware client, then you need the ncpfs utilities 
(similar to smbfs, but for Netware Core Protocol).  If you want a 
linux box to look like a Netware server, then you need to configure 
and run mars-nwe (the Netware Emulator).
