Lots of people will buy big, omnibus books about Windows 98 when what they really need is a book that explains how to install, remove, and tune components that work under the operating system. If, for example, you want to install an additional hard disk drive on a Windows 98 machine, there's no need to buy a book that devotes half its length to double-clicking. What you need is Windows 98 Installation & Configuration Handbook.
This book explores, topic by topic, how to install, configure, modify, and remove the particular components--hardware and software--that exist under Windows 98. Further, it explains the details of configuring Windows 98 itself. Installing and configuring a hard disk, ever a challenge to new users, gets a whole chapter. Another chapter covers CD-ROM and DVD-ROM installation. Readers learn how to connect to the world via a local area network (LAN) and through a modem. Dozens of subjects get attention: Personal Web Server, printers, scanners, digital cameras, Active Channels, and desktop customization, to name a few. Of course, the author catalogs the entire suite of software on the Windows 98 CD-ROM--including that which does not install automatically.
Simply put, if you're clear on Windows 98 basics and you want to find out how to modify your setup to better suit your needs, Windows 98 Installation & Configuration Handbook is for you.
This title is primarily a reference, with information presented as concisely as possible. When needed, the text slows down and presents numbered steps on how to complete more difficult tasks.
