Eveything is this book can be found elsewhere on the Internet with much of the material on Microsoft's site itself. No new revelations here. But if you are just starting a deployment strategy, this book will be a good high level overview. Much of the material is becoming outdated with new deployment tools entering the market.
One of the biggest complaints I heard during the initial months following the release of Windows NT 4.0 was the lack of tools and resources to assist with deployment and management strategies for a complex environment. Microsoft heard those same complaints. As time went on, people developed their own solutions for deployment and management. With Windows 2000, Microsoft responded to these shortcomings of NT4.0 by incorporating the most popular deployment and management technologies as core features of the new operating system. This book provides the information you need be able to exploit these technologies to fully customize the Windows 2000 Professional deployment and desktop management processes in your environment.
