Having just had some external consultancy to install ZAM, I have to say
the manual is extremely disappointing in that it's over 600 pages of pure
waffle. All I want to do is install and configure the client, run an
inventory scan and view some reports. I am finding this information
impossible to find in the manual because of all the unnecessary garbage.
It reminds me of Microsoft bloatware to be honest. Is there a simplified
cut down version of this garbage where one can get going very quickly?

Very disappointing Novell. Are you going for the "biggest manual in the
world" award for some reason?????
