    Recommended books

    Could somebody please recommend a useful starting text to get a handle on windows 2000. I am running a small network at home of three machines which was installed for me. The 'dummies book' looks a little 'light on" . However, I am not a computer guru who could tackle very complicated books. Many Thanks , Jumbo

    I like Mastering Windows 2000 Server by Mark Minasi. Everything is in there, with explainations for the masses, in click-by-click recipe format.

    Re: Recommended books

    I have a friend who is a Unix Sys Admin and wants to know about Win2000. This is what he says:

    "I don't actually want a book which will teach me to use Windows 2000 from a user perspective.
    I had more in mind a book which covered Windows 2000 Administration including setting
    up networks of W2000 machines, setting up DNS, setting up PPTP tunnelling
    and a lot of detail on using command line utilities."

    Could anyone perhaps recommend any books for this level of user.

    Thanks.

    There is a small book "Windows 2000 Commands -Pocker Reference" published by O'Rilley, edited by Aeleen Frisch, March 2001, $9.95. I believe it is available at Amazon.com, also look at www.Oreilly.com

    I recently bought O'Reilly's "Windows 2000 Administration". As with most O'Reilly's books it's a reference not a beginner's guide. Maybe it'll be useful to you too.
