Introduction

Windows 2000 Essential Reference streamlines information about Windows 2000 to enable administrators to find the critical answers and processes they need to know quickly, without scanning through numerous pages or resources. Designed as a telescoping tutorial/reference, the book breaks Windows 2000 into major areas, which are then divided into major subcategories. Readers can "dip" into a chapter to obtain the fundamentals. If you require more information, the book is cross-referenced and set up to allow targeted additional reading, topic by topic. Finally, there is a third, more comprehensive layer of detail beyond that, enabling the reader to go deeper in particular topic areas. Sections are very highly indexed and cross-referenced to each other.

How This Book Is Organized

In order to help readers find the answers they need quickly and easily, the authors have utilized the following series of design elements in organizing this reference:

  • Tables. Each section begins with a series of jump tables that let you know the primary topics discussed, what tasks the section will help you accomplish, and where you can find additional information.

  • Steps. Whenever a particular procedure is complicated, problematic, or not thoroughly discussed in the help materials, the authors give you easy-to-follow steps to help you accomplish it.

  • Cross-References. This book utilizes a series of arrows that direct you to information within and outside of the reference itself.

  • Sidebars. Authors include useful tips, warnings, and histories in a sidebar format to avoid distracting you from the main body of the text.

  • FAQs. Frequently asked questions are drawn apart from the text in sidebar format and signified by the use of a question mark on the left side.

  • Going Deeper. For administrators who want more information on a particular procedure or process, the authors provide the "Going Deeper" section at the conclusion of a section.
