I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that the Novell Client runs great on my Open Suse 10.0 installation.

Which SUSE Linux releases includes the Novell Client? I see a kernel module
making claims in this area with OpenSuse. On the local network here the
network login from a Windows PC uses the Novell Client For Windows. I would
like the same functionality from Linux that allows me to log on to the
network. Our company has an enterprise Novell license, but no one here is
very savvy about the Linux side of things. So I am pretty much on my own.

Novell's track record on this one is the bullet hole that you will find in their left foot. Novell bought a company up a couple of years back that had a NDS client for Linux, it was even demonstrated at one of the Brainshare sessions in Salt Lake City earlier that year. Novell promptly and uncerimoniously buried the company. If you want a Novell client on Linux, it is only available AFIK on the Novell Linux Desktop (NLD) which is built on SLES, not SuSE Linux.
