Mastering Windows Server 2008: Networking Foundations is one of three new books by best-selling author Mark Minasi on the latest version of Windows Server. It's for people who are just entering the world of Windows network administration and need basic instruction in Windows Server 2008 and networking concepts. It explains what servers do, how basic networking works (IP basics and DNS/WINS basics), and the fundamentals of the under-the-hood technologies that support staff must be familiar with, such as the Microsoft Management Console and the Registry. The book teaches how to install Windows Server 2008 and build a simple network, security concepts, and basic Windows Server administration. The other two new books by Mark Minasi are Mastering Windows Server 2008: Essential Technologies, which thoroughly explores all of the features and tasks IT professionals need to know to set up and manage a Windows Server 2008 network day-to-day, and Mastering Windows Server 2008: Enterprise Technologies, which addresses advanced features of Windows Server 2008 and the technologies needed by the largest enterprises. Although each of the three books stands alone, taken together they constitute the update of the market-leading Mastering Windows Server 2003.
