Dean you are welcome, the short answer is no.. as far as I know ciscoworks because of the nature of its build is design for managing cisco devices only, it has been quite sometime since Ive used ciscoworks so I recommend to post the ciscoworks snmp and non-cisco devices question portion on the Network Management forum under Network Infrasctruture where there is more Ciscoworks audience.

There is another network management product by cisco called Cisco Monitor Director that is able to manage/monitor not only cisco devices but non cisco platforms , see data sheets.. I have never used this but came accross through search, but this sounds like a more of a service provider network monitoring management solution and most likely not free.
