I'm actually a developer, and thus far the only Dummies book I would recommend for serious developers are Bill Hatfield's excellent ASP(.NET) books. However when it comes to networks I'm not as clued up as I should be (what happened to the days when IT people knew everything about computers?) which is why i bought this.
This is not a detailed under the hood look at Windows Server 2003 and gets a bit dizzy when going on about Active Directory, but it's explanation of network topology, TCP/IP, and other *fascinating* (mmm...Cat 5 cable) subjects is straightforward and easy to understand.
Admittedly the 2003 Server software does pretty much wipe your rear for you in the setup anyway. But that does kinda rely on you understanding what hardware to use and where to stick it (word to the wise: don't use xp with ICS and an ADSL modem on a 2003 Server network - just buy a router!). Anyway, I'm happy now - who would have thought that you could run Quake and SQL Server on a file/print/DHCP/DNS server with no fuss eh?
