Windows 2000 networks usually don't spring forth, whole, from the ether or anywhere else. They grow organically as Windows 2000 computers, and domains get grafted onto existing Windows NT 4.0 environments. In Windows 2000 Enterprise Networking, a pair of Microsoft- and Cisco-certified network experts share their knowledge of how the various flavors of Windows 2000 implement LAN and WAN services, and how those implementations interact with older versions of Microsoft's network operating system. This is a Microsoft text all the way, and it will prove interesting to anyone who's in the process of migrating a Windows NT network to Windows 2000.
Advice complements explanations of how various aspects of Windows networks operate in this book. For example, in the discussion of how to associate multiple networking protocols with a Remote Access Service (RAS) connection, the authors recommend being careful to give IPX support only to those clients that need to access Novell services, which saves overhead on other clients. In addition, they like to explain concepts (often with the aid of technical drawings and flow diagrams), instead of giving precise recipes to follow--a welcome vote of confidence in readers' abilities. It's also nice that coverage goes beyond the usual Active Directory and user-management subjects to include Quality of Service (QoS) on Windows 2000 networks--something that's not well covered elsewhere. --David Wall
