Not all Quick References are Linux related, but all contain information about Novell products. The Quick References are free for use, but may not be sold. The Quick References are continuously under construction. Feel free to add comments or send them to rzondervan at novell dot com. Not all QR's are completed. Except QR 1, the QR's use the same format: same font and colors, two columns and a maximum of 2 pages.
Beginners can do these labs in 5 days, depending on their base knowledge. The labs are free for use, but may not be sold without permission. The labs refer to the Quick References 2 and 3.

Email from Doug Fox
I recently came across your Quick_Reference_13_ZENworks_Asset_Management.pdf on the Novell CoolSolutions ZENworks Wiki. I found it very useful and concise. Especially, since I am in the process of implementing ZAM right now. The ZAM QR is listed as #13. I was wondering if that implied you had authored other Quick Reference Cards. If so, would you happen to have a URL to were they are located? I could not find additional ones on the Wiki. Thanks, Doug
Answer: Hi Doug, you triggered me to create this page.
