I knew about ncpfs before. From Google, as it happens...
Trouble is, all I see about it is that it supports the NCP protocol for
talking IPX (maybe also IP) to a NetWare server somewhere else.

I could not ascertain 100% if it could also allow me to access a SCSI disk
plugged in on my Linux server, hence the post.

If you are confident that ncpfs is all I need to read from the disk after I
plug it in, then thank you very much, that is what I needed to hear.
