I feel that Novell should publish the manual and sell it
separately, as previously suggested (on demand publishing). I
would ALWAYS buy the admin manual from them. As it stands now,
I just wait and buy books as they are published, like the SUSE
10 Bible which I recently bought at a local bookstore. It's
not as good as the admin manual was but it helps fill the
void.

Well, there is always Novell Press and they do publish SLES stuff. I
think the Firewalls one is the one that used to be published by New
Riders. I may be wrong.

I never found the SUSE bible or Apress books of any use.


Lets face it, Novell did this to save money NOT to save a
tree! There's nothing wrong with them wanting to save money
but not by cutting out one of the best reasons to buy the
boxed set. If everyone was so concerned about saving trees,
then bookstores and publishing companies would go out of
business. I don't see that happening anytime soon. Trees are a
renewable resource and that reasoning is just ridiculous.

I do seem to think that the boxed editions went down in price when
they cheapend them up by pulling the durable CD holders and books. I
think it used to be over $100 candaian with them, now it's down to
under $60 or $70. So it is a little cheaper.((I am not sure about any
of these retail prices -- just from my bad memory)
