Database link between TCT/IP and IPX/SPX

Is it posible, and how, to create a database link between Oracle 10g on Windows 2003 Server (TCT/IP protocol) and Oracle 7.3 on Novell (IPX/SPX protocol)?

Is it posible, and how, to create a database link between Oracle 10g on Windows 2003 Server (TCT/IP protocol) and Oracle 7.3 on Novell (IPX/SPX protocol)?
It is not possible to create this database link. For starters, Oracle 10g does not support the IPX/SPX protocol. Secondly, the network stack has changed significantly from 7.3 to 10g such that you cannot get a 10g database to communicate with a 7.3 database through a database link.
