O'Reilly and Associates is known mainly for publishing excellent books about programming languages and operating systems, and for catering to propellerheads' endless appetite for minor details. In Windows 2000 Quick Fixes, O'Reilly proves that it can put out equally excellent books for less technical users of operating systems--people who'd rather solve problems and move on than spend hours dwelling upon the obscure. Jim Boyce has written a very fine book that combines deep knowledge of Microsoft Windows 2000 and the networks it facilitates with a knack for writing that most anyone will be able to understand and follow. You'll almost certainly find this book handy as a Windows 2000 reference, and it's not a bad review for the Microsoft Windows 2000 professional certifications either.
You will likely begin using this book by browsing through the table of contents, which lists problems and objectives you'll probably encounter ("Modify your computer's name" and "Restrict others' use of your printer at certain times" are two examples). Upon turning to the referenced pages, you'll find a couple of paragraphs about what causes the problem or what factors must be adjusted to achieve the objective. Then comes a procedure (sometimes several, if prerequisites must be met first) to follow. The procedures may be too sparsely illustrated for some tastes, but the text is clear and it deals with optional settings. --David Wall
