About This Guide


This preface discusses the audience, organization, and conventions used in this guide. It also provides information on how to access this guide and other Cisco documentation on the Documentation CD-ROM that ships with the Cisco 1548 Micro Switch 10/100 and on the World Wide Web.

Audience

This guide is intended for installers whose backgrounds vary from having no networking experience to having a high level of networking experience. Despite the variation in networking experience, the goal of both types of installers is to install the switch and connect it to the network as quickly as possible. Where relevant, this guide provides explanations of how the switch is implemented and why. This conceptual information is typically placed in a separate section or appendix so that installers who are not interested can skip this information.
