Ncpfs is a filesystem which understands the Novell NetWare(TM)
NCP protocol. Functionally, NCP is used for NetWare the way NFS
is used in the TCP/IP world. For a Linux system to mount a NetWare
filesystem, it needs a special mount program. The ncpfs package
contains such a mount program plus other tools for configuring and
using the ncpfs filesystem.
Install the ncpfs package if you need to use the ncpfs filesystem
to use Novell NetWare files or services.
