Use an Openldap referral? use nldap.nlm on the NetWare machine.

But why don't you use eDirectory for all LDAP stuff? If you use the
nldap nlm, that will be possible. If you want to replicate the directory
over several platforms, you can do that on Linux, Solaris and Windows
machines - eDirectory is available for all of them.
