Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.

Booknews
This reference focuses not only on the technology of Windows 2000 Professional, but also on why the user should care, what can be gotten from the program, and what can be ignored. Cowart (author of 12 books on Windows) and Knittel (software and networks designer) cover using the interface, running programs, organizing documents, sharing data between applications, printing, and managing fonts; internet connection options and tools; networking on the LAN; system configuration and customization; and system administration and maintenance. The accompanying CD-ROM contains a command-line reference, and a keyboard shortcuts and mouseless survival guide. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    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.
