Sales of Windows NT have been growing steadily, partially at the expense of Novell NetWare. In response to this phenomenon, this new book from O'Reilly and Associates provides a fast-track means for experienced NetWare administrators to build on their knowledge and master the fundamentals of using Microsoft Windows NT Server. The broad coverage of many aspects of Windows NT Server is balanced by a tightly focused approach of comparison, contrast, and differentiation between NetWare and NT features and methodologies. The book is aimed directly at NetWare administrators who are thinking, "I know how to do this with NetWare; how do I do it with NT?"
Topics covered in Windows NT Server 4.0 for NetWare Administrators include:
Windows NT network configuration (DHCP, WINS, DNS, and RAS)
Disk configuration and administration
User management and access control
Backup and restore
Introduction to the NT Registry

Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects. The animal featured on the cover of Windows NT Server 4.0 for NetWare Adminis trators is a lioness. The lion, Panthera leo, is a muscular, brownish-yellow cat that lives in social groups called prides, unique among wild cats. The pride consists of 5-35 members: 2-4 related males, 3-12 related females, and their young.
Female lions stand about 3.5 feet tall, and weigh 260-380 pounds. During the cool evening or morning hours, the pride's lionesses fan out and hunt together, but the dominant males eat first, after a successful kill by the females. Lions make the kill in about a quarter of their total attempts, and scavenged food accounts for 10-15 percent of their diet. When hunting, lionesses charge directly at their prey, and if they miss, will often quit and try elsewhere. Approaching zebra, wilde beests, and other potential victims at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour, lionesses use their weight, claws, and large paws to knock over and pin down prey before killing it with a strong bite. Lions can consume up to 15 pounds of meat in one sitting. They are asleep or inactive for most of the day. As lions are extremely social, they sleep in close contact with their fellow pride members.
Lionesses give birth to 2-4 cubs, after finding a safe, secluded birthing place away from the pride. The lioness rarely leaves her young offspring. They return to the pride after a few months, and the lionesses then share the responsibilities of raising and nursing their young. Cubs begin to hunt with their mother when they are a few months old, though they will not kill for themselves until they are about 2 years old. ...
