We are having some strange problems with file operations between our Mac
OSX clients and the Netware server. We want to try using SMB connections
instead of AFP, but on this NW server I can't connect via SMB.

Can someone point me in the right directions to get SMB working on the
NW box? I don't even know where to start.

If I try to mount SMB://IPADDRESS or SMB://DNSNAME it sits for a minute
and then errors:
The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in
"smb://IPADDRESS" could not be read or written. (Error code -36)
