What You Need to Know

What You Need to Know

To save time during installation and to avoid frustration, gather the facts you need before you begin the installation. The inside front cover of this book gives you the basic steps for installing Windows NT Workstation, but there is much more to it than just those few steps. If you have any doubts, ask your system administrator. You will need all of the following information in order to install Windows NT Workstation:

  • The type of network adapter card you have, as well as the card's interrupt request number (IRQ) and base I/O (Input/Output) address will be very important. Consult the documentation that came with your network card for this information.

  • Your computer name and workgroup or domain name will be needed.

  • The printer model and the port to which it's connected (if you have a printer connected directly to your computer).

  • Whether you want to create a dual boot and preserve the existing operating system within a partition, or to reformat the drive to a Windows NT Workstation operating system is important. You can designate a portion (partition) of the drive as MS-DOS and a portion as Windows NT. Your decision depends on the type of programs you use, your network logons, and other factors. If you're unsure, see your system administrator.

  • Which network protocols to install to be compatible to the network to which you're attached.
