Why don't you use the NCPFS support on Linux (assuming you're using
Linux servers) to mount your Netware volumes onto your Linux servers,
and then simply share them as normal with Samba?

Hmm - you could shift your Netware boxes to *nix, and run Samba, and
mars-nwe for the Netware clients. However, this is probably to difficult
to implement without losing some functionality - I'd expect you'd end up
buying NDS for Linux.
