just this morning I also installed Novell Client for Linux 2.0SP1 beta.
BUT: I downloaded the version for openSUSE 11.1 and SLE11

Just additional info to let you know how I installed it here and how it works
(openSUSE Factory, but there is not much changed to 11.1 yet.. that's
why it works).

- download the ISO from the novell beta site (I use x86_64)
- unpacked the content to /mnt/NCL
- added it as a repo to zypper (zypper ar /mnt/NCL NCL)
- installed it (zypper in -t pattern novell-ncl)

I tried it in a similar way (added the ISO as a repository in Yast), and
I get this:

#### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2009-01-21 13:17:49 ####

nothing provides needed by

[ ] do not install pattern:novell-ncl-1.0.0-5.i586

#### YaST2 conflicts list END ###

With your zypper command, I get basically the same:

Problem: nothing provides needed by
Solution 1: do not ask to install a solvable providing

The system is an up-to-date (not factory) openSUSE11.1. I only
have /usr/lib/ from the binutils package. Perhaps you have
more installed? Where does your come from?
