The status of your token ring has changed. The ibmtr driver is a bit chatty
about such things.

tr0 doesn't exist as a device (say in /dev). Network interfaces in Linux
aren't accessible through a file. You have to use network tools:

ifconfig tr0

will show you settings and allow you to modify these settings.

Sorry, I haven't got Caldera working perfectly with my NDS tree, so I can't
help you beyond the tr0. But nwclient should let you connect to arbitrary
servers. You don't have to mount them, as the netware file system stuff
that Caldera includes will make the servers available in /NetWare once you
log into the server with nwclient.
