For the crowd that finds cartoon-style graphical training guides too elementary, Perry has created a book that begins by walking new Windows 98 users through the most basic aspects of their operating system and goes on to help them discover fairly advanced features. By the end of Sams Teach Yourself Windows 98 in 24 Hours, you ought to be using the Internet, channels, and other potentially complicated features. The idea is that you'll be a competent Windows 98 user by the time you put this book down.
After explaining the most elementary aspects of Windows 98--the Start button, the Taskbar, the fundamentals of window management, and so on--the author proceeds to detail the features of the Active Desktop and the various means by which you can locate files. From there, it's on to running applications (including DOS programs) and the mechanics of installation and removal. All the major accessories (Calculator and the rest) receive documentation.
Much of this book has to do with the Internet: connecting a computer to it and using various applications to get something out of it. Internet Explorer gets plenty of ink, as does Outlook Express (Windows 98's electronic mail tool). Remaining chapters have to do with multimedia, channels, hardware installation, Update Manager, and other features. You'll find this book to be an excellent tool for learning your way around Windows 98 for the first time.
