SCOM 2007 R2 101 Document

I came across this document today, emailed the link to a few friends and then thought I should share it with everyone I know. I spend a great deal of time talking to people about system management and virtualization; with Microsoft technologies that requires a good understanding of SCOM. This is a great document for people  starting out with SCOM implementations or even people experienced in the product. 100+ pages of great documentation from Microsoft Premier Field Engineers who live in the product.
