Cant see novell server from w2k server.

I am running a windows 2000 server and I am not able to get to our novell 5 server VIA the name of the server...i can only get to it if i use the actualy IP of the server. I can ping the ip and i get a response, but when i ping the name i get not response.  Does anyone know if i have some kind of name resolution error, what it could be and how to go about fixing it.
Thank you.

both servers have latest patches and updates.
