Re: Cisco for dummies?
Actually the Nutshell books are great. "Cisco IOS in a Nutshell" I can go for that. Aren't they the ones that also do *the* Sendmail book? I have never thought much of the Cisco classes, but that is a personal preference I suppose, most of the people I know who still use IPX are very happy with it. Then again, I don't hear many people talking about the future of IPX anymore. -Deepak. On Fri, 8 Nov 1996, Michael Vallee wrote: > > This is actually a very good idea.
