Does this NFS-Gateway run also und OES/Linux ?

No.

However, you likely don't need it. Linux can mount NFS natively of
course, and in theory you should be able to create a NCP Volume of that
mount point. I've never tried that though, nor do I know if it's
supported.

I asked the same question in another forum, and got this answer:
It is *theoretically* possible to serve an NFS filesystem using ncpserv,
but you may run into some nasty locking issues that exist with NFS. You
can put the mount point anywhere (I would suggest
/mnt/<hostname>/<sharename>, and then add it to the
/etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf file. No guarantees this will work, as I've
never tried it. However, you *can* use Samba to share an NFS filesystem
through CIFS, which is the native Windows protocol. This is similar to
Native File Access for Netware.
