We plan to put forth a series of Technical Documents that will cover your migration from Windows to Linux. We put together a tentative outline below, which is by no means a commitment by Novell to provide this content. We reserve the right to change the order of the chapters and their content at any time. If you wish to provide feedback, we have provided a utility at the top of the page called "rate this" which contains a section for feedback. If you are commenting on a specific chapter, please include the chapter number or title in your feedback.
