I'm not exactly how to do this so I'll ask here.

Currently we're using a ghost image for all our workstations, in that
image we configure the novell client by putting in the ldap
connections, etc.

at a previous job all we did was type in username, hit tab and it would
browse the containers looking for the user object. This is what I'd
like to go with.

Can anyone tell me how to accomplish this?
