Thank you very much for doing it (saves me some trouble 8-)! I'll get it and
make some testing, although I can't test the network functionality right
here (My home machine is not connected to a network).

I'll give it a try and maybe look a bit into that. In the long run, it would
be nice to have also the free dos tools packaged (if they are worth it,
don't know), and have a small default configuration in /var/.../novell, to
which a sysadmin can link other dir's or filesystems into. Especially
section 1 could then provide a sensible default. Just an idea.
Thank you again!
