James,

does the non-support of Linux by Cisco really matter if Netview & Ciscoworks 
are running on two separate boxes ?   Imagine Netview (with Integration kit) is 
running on Linux and Ciscoworks is running on Solaris, then I think your kit is 
worth running.  Am I wrong ?

Regards,
Bernard Baudoux,
