Gerber does offer a complete and easy to follow guide to setting up an MS Exchange Server. In addition, there is direction on the use of both the Server and the client software. The material is well presented, if little different than would be found in the documentation. Singularly missing is any compelling reason to use MS Exchange Server. Those who have heard some of the claims for Exchange will find little evidence to support its purchase. Examples of real applications would have made the book more convincing, and likely more useful. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996

Book description
"Rawlins is a terrifically angular writer, crisp and fluid and recognizable. Very nice staccato in the vignettes and stories he uses to illustrate his notions, VERY interesting metaphors, almost anthropological in its reach and ability to hang in one's memory like an afterimage." -- Deborah Fitzgerald, Program on Science and Technology, MIT "Total immersion in artificial environments, integration of computer networks with the human nervous system, intelligent weapons that stalk their targets, the triumph of intellectual resources over natural resources, well I could go on. Rawlins weaves these inexorable trends and more into a highly engaging and, yes, suspenseful tale of the past exponentially transforming itself into the future. Highly re...

Book description
The Windows NT Registry is the repository for all hardware, software, and application configuration settings, and Managing the Windows NT Registry is the system administrator's guide to maintaining, monitoring, and updating the Registry database. The book addresses four main areas: What is the Registry? Where does it live on disk? How do system services access and use it? What do you do if it's damaged or corrupted? Every NT administrator faces questions like this, often in a desperate attempt to fix something that's broken. What tools are available? Detailed descriptions of Regedit, RegEdt32, the System Policy Editor, and selected Resource Kit utilities explain how to edit and secure the Registry both on local and on remote computers. H...

YACFBL (yet another collection from Bob LeVitus). A 1.44M floppy full of (seventeen) examples of programmatic "cute". As always, the programs are well chosen. The documentation is fairly brief: most of the items in this set are quite simple. I am glad to see that a number are straightforward applications, but this is likely a personal bias from my life as a professional paranoid. Many books include "free disks!" of shareware, with a small notice somewhere in the back saying that the programs are shareware. LeVitus is quite careful in this regard. For each program that is shareware (and the majority of this set is legitimately freeware) the price (and usually address) is given, as well as a recommendation that you register. copy...

Popularly regarded as the toughest of the MCSE Core Four exams, the Windows NT Server 4 in the Enterprise test (70-68) requires you to integrate knowledge of NT Server with knowledge of NT Workstation, Windows 95, older operating systems, and various back-end transaction software. It's a difficult exam, and this book can help you prepare.Much of the Enterprise exam focuses on planning and establishing an NT network, and this book follows suit. A third of the material here addresses issues of pre-installation decision making, installation, configuration, and optimization. The protocols--NetBEUI, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and AppleTalk--also get lots of attention, and later sections address NT security, RAID, and routing.Another large portion of this ...
