Re: [K12OSN] Linux vs. Novell (Can you help?)

There's been a lot of talk about using LDAP+Samba with Linux but it appears
that it is easier said then done.  I think if it delievers as promised then
it should be high on the list for documentation & ease of setup among those
in the know (which I ain't).

One thing I love about Novell vs. Linux--File Salvage. Ah, now that is a
handy feature.  Beats the heck out of pulling up a tape to restore one file,
etc. IMO...
