Which is better Windows XP Novell client or Novell client 32

I have a Novell 5.1 server and Windows 2000 Pro workstation using the
Novell Client 32 software. Everything is working correctly, but I am
changing to the XP Pro OS. Is there a big advantage to using the Novell
Client or is the Windows Novell client good enough.

Please give concrete pros and cons if possible.

Thanks

Bo

I strongly prefer the Novell Client.

It is more flexible in the settings (install them both and see for
yourself), exponentially more secure, and you can't run some management
tools without the Novell Client.

In either case, you're running a Client, so software installation isn't
an issue.

One thing to note, the Windows native client only talks IPX to NetWare.
