I'm ready for steps 7 and 8 under "Deploying Universal Password" found

Existing network that currently has Novell client software installed
without NMAS (just NICI).

Step 7, Enable Unversal Password: Is this usually a fairly
straightforward task? If there are problems, will just disabling the
policy disable universal password and back me out of it?

Step 8, Deploy Novell Client Software: It is listed as the last step,
but the explanation makes it sound like it could be deployed prior to
step 7. Does it matter when I update the clients with the NMAS
