Question: What options do Macintosh users have accessing files on a Novell network?

The IT Guy says:
For some time, Macintosh users in Novell environments may have felt like unwanted stepchildren. This is no longer the case. With Netware 6.0 both older Macintosh OS 9 clients as well as newer OS X clients can natively mount Netware 6.0 volumes through the chooser or "Go Server" menu option in OS X.

Prosoft Macintosh clients for Novell environments are still available for networks that do not support native Macintosh connections (http://www.macwindows.com/netware.html).
