Dave has been working with Novell products for six years. He has done some GroupWise version upgrades on GroupWise systems (GW 5.5, 6.x and 7.x), BorderManager, and ZfD 3, 4, 6 and 7. He passed his CNE6 in April 2005, and would now like to learn a lot more about OES Linux. He works in a hospital in the Netherlands as a Novell administrator.
