Slow XP => Novell server connection

Slow XP => Novell server connection

Slow XP => Novell server connection

We recently got 2 new HP workstation that connect to our Novel 5 server and 2 windows servers.
At this moment browsing through files on the Novell server is VERRY slow.
(takes 1.5 minutes to display a directory with some files)

I have been searching on the internet and it appears that this a caused by the following combination:
Windows XP (SP2), Novell Client 4.90, Novell 5.

I have read that this problem can be solved by installing the Novell 4.83 SP2 client, there is only one problem:
I can't find this client anywhere on the internet!

Does anybody know a site where I can still download it, or
know another fix for this problem?

Any help will be greatly appriciated!!
