novell maped directory

When you use ncpmount you need to add a -f 0777 -d 0777 to give all rights to any
users on the system to that filesystem.  So, for example, if you mount a netware
volume called vol1 on server1 you would do something like this:

ncpmount -S server1 -U username -P netwarepassword -f 0777 -d 0777 -u unixowner
-g unixownergroup /mnt/netware

This would mount netware volume vol1 on server server1 loging into the netware
server with a username of username and a password of netwarepassword to the linux
path /mnt/netware.  The /mnt/netware directory and all subdirectories would have
0777 permisions as would all of the files, and everything would be owned by
unixowner with a group ownership of unixownergroup.  This of course doesn't
change the actual netware rights, but it sets the unix rights and ownership for
the mounted filesystem.

I hoped this helped.
