Using FTP may be our eventual result, but we'd like to use CPYTOIMPF it
at all possible.  We could use CPYTOIMPF to do our conversions, store
our result in a temp file, and then FTP the temp file, but that adds a layer
of complication to something we'd prefer to keep as simple as possible.

Regarding the earlier question, I am under the impression that Novell 5 has 
SMB support (I'm getting confirmation of that).  My whole question does depend 
on that,
of course.
