Novell client for Linux

Hi There

I´m currently running RedHat 7.2 and would like to connect to my Novell server. I would like to know if there are any Novell clients available, besides Caldera´s? If there are no clients available how could I connect manualy then?

Thanking you for your response

aqoliveira, check the next post down (novell5 and linux post) that i posted...
this is what i've always used at work and it has always worked until recently.

mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx //server/share /mnt/share
in the above example, //xeon/share /mnt/share
create a folder in mnt called share.

"mount" mounts a file structure.
-t is the filesystem type. in this case: smbfs
-o ("o", not zero) option. examples:nodev,noexec,nosuid,user.
in this case: username=blahblah,password=blah
//server/share what you are trying to mount

i hope this helps, if anyone else reads my reply and sees where i totally goofed it up, please correct me. i'm still quite ignorant about much of the workings of Linux.
