Basically, I was wondering if anyone has made Linux compliant with Netware
at all. As I do not really know much about protocols, I cannot really ask
much more than this.

Cheers

There is a beta test IPX layer for Linux, but no netware support. Novell
guards its netware details with lawyers and complex licensing agreements
involving thousands of dollars. So forget it - Linux does Lan manager and NFS

There is always reverse-engineering.

Dr.Dobbs journal Nov. 1993 covers most of it. It doesn't help in the slightest
if you look at the list of alleged software patents that Novell hold
in the USA. Reverse engineering doesn't exempt you from patents.
