 Clipper 5.2e App migration from Netware 4.10 to Netware 5/NT4.0

Hi.  I have a multi-user Clipper 5.2e DOS application running fine on a
Netware 4.10 server with Win 95 workstations.  However, the customer wants
to upgrade the server soon and intends to use either Windows NT 4.0 or
Netware 5 as the new server OS.  In the Clipper app, the locking strategy
makes use mainly of the NET_USE(), UNLOCK functions from Grumpfish library.

What are the known issues if I were to use Netware 5 or NT 4.0.  Do I have
to do any code changes?  Are any special settings needed at the workstation
or server side?  Which network protocol should I use?  Which migration will
be easier (or tend to be more successful with least work), Netware 5 or
NT4.0?  This application only need to be used by up to 5 users.

Thanks for any advice rendered.
