Question Linux Box in a Novell Network

I'm very new at the Linux thing. I just set up a box with RH 9 and need to get it to "talk" to our Novell file server, NetWare 5.1 variety. I installed the NetWare Client for Linux, but apparently I need to have "ncpfs" installed. I don't know where to get it, which version I need, how to install it, or even what it is.

Actually this is even easier on RH:
As root, type 'up2date ncpfs'
