    Highly Recommended

    This book is a great reference for anyone upgrading to Windows 2k Pro or just wanting to learn more about the OS. It is easy to understand, yet full of useful information. The book is also enjoyable to read.

    Thorough, Extremely Well Written Win2K Pro Book

    Just got my hands on 'Using Windows 2K Pro' and I have to say that it is outstanding! Overall, the book is extremely relevant and practical. It covers nuggets such as multi-boot support and mixed protocol network environments in detail. It doesn't exhaust well known or irrelevant topics for the sake of filling space (e.g. why do so many OS books waste dozens of pages covering mouth watering topics such as WordPad or Solitaire). The book is exceedingly well written. I'm very cognizant of what makes for a readable, organized text. Hell, it's even fun to read. The authors go the extra step in actually providing their own subjective insights! For me, that's what support documentation should do. It's obvious the authors did their homework in thoroughly understanding the inner workings of an OS. The book is targeted towards intermediate to advanced audience. I think this is the audience for early adopters of Win2K Pro. In doing so, it gets into heady topics (e.g. network defenses/firewall strategies), but provide enough supporting documentation to make it accessible to the intermediate user. The text nicely steps outside the 'boundaries' of Win 2K, by reviewing network topologies, physical media, etc. I'll look forward to delving more into this little gem, and will enthusiastically recommend it t

    Excellent coverage, lots of tips

    This book is a welcome reference to Microsoft's latest OS, with thorough coverage and a comprehensive index. Aside from installation help and general orientation for this new OS, Cowart/Knittle's book has deep discussions about networking, VPN, web folders and web-based printing, security, MMC, a chapter on multi-booting, another on Windows Scripting Host, and other meaty topics that I wanted to understand better. Well done, and an entertaining read at times, too. I recommend this book if you want to know what Windows 2000 is about, how to use it, and how to administer it.

    Very helpful

    This book helped us to implement Windows 2000 in house and our customers machines. Explained very clearly every part of that process.
