    A reviewer

    I just got the Windows Home Server OEM software and decided to get a book as well - there were currently only 2 choices, both of which looked good, but I went for this one as it was cheaper than the other. This one is very detailed with lots of clear pictures and steps for doing everything you could possibly want to do, including setting up remote access, which I had problems with until I read the book. That alone made it worth the money! The book itself is split up into many chapters, each covering a specific area of the product in great detail, that way if you dont want to use part of it, you can skip the chapter. Also has lots of hints and tips and things to watch out for. Well worth adding to your collection if you have or are thinking of getting Windows Home Server.

    A "How To" for Windows Home Server

    Most of the information is informative and complete. I was able to successfully install the individual computers on a server (which was already built and loaded). The "devil" was in the "details" for the router. Author was a "Brit" and hence used the BT (Britsih Telcom) home hub router for the example. For those who know precious little about how routers and modems work, life gets complicated. The "auto" config "mostly" works, but there are still headaches.
    Overall, he did a very good job for those of us who know just enough to be dangerous. This is better than the book MicroSoft "should" have provided!
