A solid reference for power users and administrators alike, Inside Windows 95 covers the essentials in an organized fashion. The book's topics range from the basics of successful installation to the complexities of networking. Inside Windows 95 depicts each subject in detail, complete with screen shots, diagrams, tips, notes, and warnings indicated by icons.
The authors break the text down into larger section headings, which include Overview and Setup, Working in Windows 95, Windows 95 Architecture and Optimization, Sharing Resources, and Using the Internet. The authors then divide each larger section into easily accessible chapters that comprehensibly cover a single topic, such as the Windows 95 Registry, OLE, and built-in networking tools.
Administrators will benefit from the sections on using Windows 95 in conjunction with older versions of Windows, OS2, and DOS and from the section describing the best way to configure Windows 95 machines as clients on an NT network. By sharing the chapters on installing, running, and uninstalling applications--and the sections that are specific to Microsoft Exchange, MS Fax, and the Microsoft Network--with your users, you could prevent unnecessary help desk calls later.
