Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
The more time we've spent with Windows 2000 Professional, the more we've come to depend upon Special Edition Using Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional as our primary reference. Fifteen hundred pages strong, it's the most thorough Win2K Pro guide we've seen so far—and the most useful.

It's hard to see what the authors of this book have missed. From organizing your folders and hard disks to creating professional-sounding music CDs, it's here. Managing print jobs, setting up multi-boot environments, tweaking the Windows 2000 GUI, encrypting your files, using Windows' new search features, all here. There's a full section on system administration and system maintenance, walking you through Windows 2000 Professionals' key tools (most of them new). There's extensive coverage of managing your system, troubleshooting hardware, and optimizing performance.

Fully 40% of the book covers Windows 2000 Professional's extensive networking and Internet-related features—and it's coverage that goes well beyond the box. For example, the chapter on connecting your LAN to the Internet includes a super-realistic look at the foibles of today's high-speed cable modems and DSL services, plus a simple tweak that can significantly improve your performance. If you're sharing a network with Macs, even though Professional doesn't include any Mac support (that's limited to Windows 2000 Server), the authors of this book provide some useful tips for coexistence (and even point you to software that runs old Mac-ware on Windows!)

This one's a winner—in giant economy size.
