"Intel Corporation today announced it has extended the Intel LANDesk Management Suite to provide support for Linux-based systems. A new software module for Intel LANDesk Management Suite 6.3, available today for download from the Internet, enables IT managers to inventory the hardware and software assets on Linux-based laptops, PCs and servers and take remote control of those systems when diagnosing or repairing problems. 'As many of our customers deploy Linux-based systems throughout their organizations, especially for web, e-commerce and file and print servers, it is imperative that they have the tools to manage and maintain these heterogeneous environments,' said Ed Ekstrom, vice president and general manager for Intel's Systems Management Division.

Previously, Intel LANDesk Management Suite 6.3 provided flexible control of desktops running Microsoft Windows* 95, Microsoft Windows 98, and Microsoft Windows NT, connected via the Internet or corporate Intranet to Microsoft Windows NT Server and Novell NetWare* networks, from a single point of administration and single console. Now [it]... includes text-based remote control and inventory tools for Caldera OpenLinux* 1.3, Caldera OpenLinux 2.2, Red Hat Linux* 5.2, Red Hat Linux 6.0 and SuSE Linux* 6.1 systems."

"The software module extending support to Linux-based systems is available immediately, free of charge, for customers who are current licensed users of Intel LANDesk Management Suite 6.3..."
