Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Microsoft Windows XP Power Pack answers Windows questions you didn’t even know existed. How to give you an idea of this book’s attitude? Well, you’ve seen those texts that warn you about touching the Registry, or else? (“There be dragons!”) This book says: Dive in. Here’s how to do it safely. And while you’re in there, here are a few dozen settings you might want to tweak.

James Michael Stewart and Stu Sjouwerman tell you all you ever wanted to know about the Windows XP boot process -- including troubleshooting Ntldr, Ntdetect, Ntoskrnl.exe, Bootsect.dos, and Boot.ini errors. (May you never have this much grief on start-up.) You’ll find extensive coverage of squeezing more performance out of Windows XP: establishing baselines, working with System Monitor, identifying bottlenecks, using Resource Kit and third-party performance tools, and more. There are seven full chapters on networking: everything from TCP/IP and legacy protocols to Unix integration, remote access and VPNs -- including, again, troubleshooting.

The authors say they’re writing primarily for power users. But, with chapters on Terminal Services, scripting and automation, and the aforementioned Registry and networking coverage, we think their book will be equally useful to administrators.

The accompanying CD-ROM includes a fully licensed (not trialware) version of AutoPilot, Sunbelt Software’s automated performance tuner for both Windows XP workstations and Windows servers. If you like that, there’s a disk full of Sunbelt trialware to check out -- for everything from managing logon scripts to controlling file permissions. Bill Camarda
