NCPFS implementation: Command slist does not show the default available Netware server and issues error 'Server not found (0x8847)'.

I had windows 98 machines up on the same network as that of Linux and Netware. Windows doesn't allow the Netware data link layer software module to be floating i.e. when linux is configured to automatically select the proper interface for IPX, the linux machine selects it as directed by the windows machines. So explicitly add an IPX interface to the 'ethn'. For eg,

ipx_interface add eth0 802.2

This worked. If this doesn't work try out with other frame types in place of 802.2. It can be checked when we login as a client on the netware server.
