Re: [Computerbank] more standardised install discussion needed ASAP


while I understand what you are sayying, you are forgetting the need to 
develop training documentation, technical documentation, and training 
programmes. These tie heavily into what we are installing. Without a 
relatively standardised install, we are looking at a ridiculous mountain 
of paperwork, and major training difficulties.

Romana's two cents wrth;)
