By now, everyone acknowledges that Windows 2000 is, by far, the most reliable Windows ever. But that doesn't mean you won't have problems -- or that you'll never struggle to figure out how to do something you knew how to do in Windows NT or 9x. That's where Windows 2000 Quick Fixes comes in. In this task-based book, Jim Boyce covers the stuff Windows 2000 administrators really run into -- from printing problems to network and Internet configuration.
Boyce covers an exceptionally wide range of issues. For example, you'll learn what to do if your only partition is NTFS and Windows 2000 won't boot -- or if you can't log on after you add a hard drive to a system. You'll learn how to troubleshoot Internet-based printing; how to automate backups, manage web servers remotely; and what to do when a computer on the network stubbornly won't show up in My Network Places. There's also a good deal of coverage of security, from securing web sites with SSL, to securing email with digital certificates.
Boyce assumes you know the basics, and focuses on the issues that challenge experienced Windows users -- both desktop users of Windows 2000 Professional, and Win2K server administrators. Next time you encounter a problem you can't solve, you'll be very glad you own a copy.(Bill Camarda)
