Since you can't ditch the Novell setup, just install a SMB/LDAP server
and auth everyone to it.  Then let the Novell run in the server room and
just tell everyone that is what they are using :-)

Sorry, that doesn't help does it.  Just for that I'll try to help some.

A quick google search brought this up
But that looks like you need Novell 6.0 or later to work.

I see this website had someone post about using Novell 5.1, if all else
fails you could try to contact them.  The email that posted was
desmond at dunhess.com.au

Good luck
