this was necessary because Novell does not support TCP/IP protocol it uses IPX/SPX instead.

That statement is Incorrect; current versions of Novell Netware support TCP/IP. Back in the Netware 3 and 4 days that was the protocol to use. If I am remembering correctly, Netware 3.x and 4 did have an add-on for the TCP/IP protocol, just very limited. Starting with Netware 5 TCP/IP was native.

And Win XP does include GSNW (Gateway Service for Netware) a way to connect to Netware servers but it is not as rich as the Netware Client.
