19.1. The Domain

As you may remember from Chapter 18, nobody else on a workgroup network can access the files on your PC unless you've created an account for them on your machine. Whenever somebody new joins the department, you have to create another new account; when people leave, you have to delete or disable their accounts. If something goes wrong with your hard drive, you have to re-create all of the accounts.

19.1.1. What's Wrong with Workgroups
