Giving Windows Clients access to Netware Folder

I have a netware 7 groupwise system with the email archives stored locally
on one of it's volumes. I would like to have Windows clients access their
archives without installing client 32. Is this possible? I was hoping I
could use one of the windows 2003 server's as a gateway that creates a
share for the windows clients. I know about gateway services for netware
but I do not want to put IPX/SPX on my network in order to accomplish
this. My netware box's are running nw6.5sp6 and the windows server is 2k3
with win2k and winxp on the clients.

Any help is appreciated.

If the server is 6.5 yes. Then just configure CIFS. CIFS is aso
available in 6.0, but not as polished.

Should work like a charm (does for me...), just let me add a few things:

- for CIFS with 6.5SP6 make sure to get the CIFS patched or it may (or WILL) hang at next reboot. I forgot this once...(it's a hard hang).
- works best if your users are already in a windows domain: use it in domain mode so you shoudln't have much problems with passwords.
