How do I connect to netware 3.12 from win7 PC

Specs: Windows 7
We have NetWare 3.12 server. From all PCs having windows XP, I am able to connect to this server without any problem. Recently we got a PC with Windows 7 OS (32 bit). I installed "Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows" but while login in, it gives error message that it cannot find the server. I installed Windows XP mode in the same PC and installed the working client 32 (which works fine in other XP Pcs). But in the XP mode also, I get same error and it is not able to find the server. I cannot login to the NetWare server. Would appreciate any help on this.

I guess, there is no way, to get it to work.
This is, because the netware 3.12 server needs a bindery login as well as IPX protocol, where bindery logon is not supported by Novell Client 2 SP1 and IPX is not supported by Windows 7.

Windows XP installed in VMware Virtual Machine with Novell Client 4.91 should work.
