configuring it, security, firewalls, restricted access, administration, upgrades, etc.

I think it might be a good idea to put what I've got so far up on a site. I'll do that when I return home.

>From what it sounds like, I think our works would be complementary. The NAG and SAG for instance concentrate on howto maintain an
existing installation. What yours sounds like is howto decide on new stuff for an enterprise installation. My howto would suggest
howto introduce linux to a corporation that has always had brandX for no other reason than Because. Where others concentrate on the
technical knowledge, I've made a specific point of concentrating on the people skills necessary to get Linux rolled.

I'll put the roughs on a site and post the URL later on.
