Question Mount Novell Netware partition under Linux?

Hello people!

I'm having an interesting problem here, and I was wondering if someone could help...

I am trying to mount a Novell Netware partition, from a HDD belonging to a Novell server, which I placed on my Linux machine.

The PC is running SuSE 8.2 Pro.

I have tried searching for something similar, but all I could find was info on mounting Novell Volumes, over the network, from a Novell server... :-(

Is there a way to directly mount the partition??

"mount -t ncpfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/hdd" doesn't seem to work... (yes, the device and mount point are correct... ;-)

No, unfortunately I couldn't find something at that time.

I managed to read the Novell disk using a windoze app, (Captain Nemo), which worked fine and I was able to transfer files from/to it.

I haven't checked if any progress has been made on the Linux world since, though.

Good luck!
