This release is for client 4.9 and 4.91, English only. Also now has the ZENworks 6.5 debug registry keys supported.
With the release of ZENworks for Desktops (ZfD) 4.0, Novell removed the client configuration policy which had been present in ZENworks up to that point. ZfD 4.0 did not require the client to work (if you deploy Mid-Tier servers), but for those people who want to retain the client for its ease of use and performance benefits, ZfD did not provide an easy way to send updates to the Client.
Automatic Client Update (ACU) is a good way to deploy the Client in the first place, but it's overkill for small changes, and the management tool, NCIMAN does not always have all of the latest settings which come with Support Packs and patches.
The best alternative was to look at using Extensible Policies (for Windows NT), or Group Policies (for Windows 2000/XP). However, the Administrative Templates (ADM files) for the Novell Client have not been updated for some time (since 2000 in fact!) and so there are many features missing.
The Technical Subscriptions team, the nice people who produce:
I wanted to be able to provide the ADM files, and so here they are!
See readme.txt for update history.

Note: From version 3.8 onwards, I will no longer be updating the 4.9 ADM file or the extendible policy, only the ADM for 4.91.
Please let me know if this causes inconvenience.
I'd like to offer a special vote of thanks to Tony Pedretti, for making most of the suggestions, and for nagging me until I found the time to do the revisions.
