FoxPro Database Connection

I am attempting to connect to data we have in a FoxPro database using

The web hosting machine is Windows 2000 Server running IIS5. .NET
framework has been added. Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver:
6.01.8630.01. Running the most recent MDAC as well.

The database is on a Novell cluster, so I am using the most recent
Novell client to connect to the server. I have a mapped drive to
connect to the DBC with.

I had a hard time just opening the DBC file, but through switching
between a system and user account and that fixed that. Now, it
connects to the database, but can't open any of the table files:
[Microsoft][ODBC Visual FoxPro Driver]Cannot open file

I have tried a number of solutions and have not found anything. I
think it might have to do with the DBC file already being open? That
doesn't fly because multiple people access this data using 3rd party

Please advise,
