    Please try to disable SMB sign on the domain:

    Also, please note that Novell 3.12 isnt support product anymore
    and using Novell & MS isnt supported by Microsoft also.

      When you ran the Novell client32 install on the XP machines, did you choose the option to do a bindery connection or an nds connection?
