ncpmount is broken in Unifix Linux 2.0.
In the definition of struct ncp_mount_data in /usr/include/linux/ncp_mount.h, change
unsigned char mount_point[PATH_MAX+1];to
unsigned char mount_point[1024+1];and recompile the kernel and the ncpmount program (from package ncpfs-2.0.4). The bug is already fixed in the updated kernel sources for Linux 2.0.28. A new ncpmount binary is also available. Get the patch http://www.unifix.de/support/patches/patch-184.108.40.206.cpio , and run (as root)
swinstall -s patch-220.127.116.11.cpio.
No workaround is known.
