2.0 out of 5 stars No Depth At All! 1 Feb 2000
By Pete - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book based off of the reviews I've seen at this site by readers. After reading this book, I am totally disappointed. The type was extremely large (to increase the page count) and the content BARELY scrathed even the surface of most of the new concepts.
This book would be ideal for users who've never shared a folder before, or have never worked in an admin position (all kinds of elementary info on how to "communicate" with co-workers...aka "filler" material). If you're in this category, then this book would be ideal for you. If you're familiar with NT 4 and want to look under the hood to see the new features and how they work, save your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll need this if you plan on Installing 2000 Server 28 Dec 1999
By James Hildebrand - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent overall handbook on installing and configuring 2000 server. There plenty on Active Directory, especially in how to transition the NT file/folder structure.
Also provided a much better understanding of groups/accounts/user policies than the beta doc on these subjects. Definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Use this book to install and configure Windows 2000 Server 14 Mar 2000
By Brad Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
I have been administering a fairly large NT network for some time, and I was very excited by the prospect of migrating to Windows 2000. In particular, I was eager to implement Windows' new security protocols as well as to start using Active Directory.
Before I began the installation, I bought this book to help me with some of the new features, and hopefully avoid time-consuming mistakes during configuration. Well, I got even more than I bargained for with this book. The team of admins. who wrote this obviously spen countless hours setting up and breaking down 2000 Server, and they've done an incredible job of conveying their experience in this book. I was particulary impressed by the their ability to identify the more problematic or difficult topics and then go into greater detail or provide examples and exercises. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is responsible for a major Windows 2000 rollout.

1.0 out of 5 stars All talk with little action 26 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have worked with NT for about 4 years. I bought this book because it had many reviews and most of them where good. I figured the couple of bad reviews where people who just like to complain. I buy many books and like most of them. But this book was the biggest waste of money I have come across. This book is definately for beginners who want to setup Users and Groups. It talks about what Windows 2000 Server can do, but shows very little about how to do it. I agree with the earlier review, WHERE'S THE BEEF? Don't waste your money.
