Windows 2000 Pro combines the friendly interface of Windows 98 withthe famous stability of Windows NT. Windows 2000, the successor toNT, introduces many technologies that weren't available in NT,including Plug-and-Play, support for USB devices, power managementfeatures, and more. It's 25% faster than Windows 98 and three timesas stable. Unfortunately, despite all the enhancements, Microsoftforgot to address one of NT's most glaring omissions: Windows 2000doesn't include a printed user's manual. In Windows 2000 Pro:The Missing Manual, bestselling Windows NT author SharonCrawford provides the ideal (and desperately needed) user's guidefor the world's most popular corporate operating system. The bookcovers:

  • Getting started. The early chapters cover using menus,finding lost files, reducing window clutter, and taming the wildStart menu.

  • What's what. A complete guide, this book explains thepurpose of every Control Panel item, accessory program, andmaintenance tool.

  • Mastering the network. Special chapters help younavigate the corporate network, dial in from the road, and even setup your own small-office (peer-to-peer) network, step by step.

  • Understanding security. User accounts, file encryption,and the NTFS file system keep your private files private, whilestill offering network access to coworkers you specify.

  • Flying the Net. This book demystifies the rich Internetsuite of Windows 2000 Pro: its email, newsgroup, Web-browsing, andvideo conferencing programs.

Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual isn't for systemadministrators or OS theory geeks; it's for the novice or buddingpower user who wants to master the machine and get down to work.Windows 2000 Pro: The Missing Manual is the crystal-clear,jargon-free book that should have been in the box.
