Re: [TCLUG:6525] redhat vs mandrake

Please tell me if you have a good experience with Caldera's netware
client. It was very flacky for me on redhat 5.1. It would work fine on
some directories and never on others (on the same server!) and others
would pop on and off. I never got printing working either. ncpfs-2.2
worked great for me. long files (caldera doesn't support that!),
printing, etc, but I would like to use NDS. 

If you plan on using ipx much of the time, I'd compile it straight into
the kernel, although you should be able to get it to work as a module.
Also, run something like `ipx_configure --auto-something
--auto-somethingelse` the exact command should be in the ipx
