The best thing about this part is that it focuses on how to use a network without getting into the technical details of setting up a network or maintaining a network server. In other words, this part is aimed at ordinary network users who have to learn how to get along with a network.
Part II: Building Your Own Network
Uh-oh. The boss just gave you an ultimatum: Get a network up and running by Friday or pack your things. The chapters in this section cover everything you need to know to build a network, from picking the network operating system to installing the cable.
Part III: Network Management For Dummies
I hope that the job of managing the network doesn’t fall on your shoulders, but in case it does, the chapters in this part can help you out. You find out all about backup, security, performance, dusting, mopping, changing the oil, and all the other stuff network managers have to do.
Part IV: Network Operating Systems
This part has some specific information about the most common network operating systems — Windows Server 2003, NetWare 6, and Linux — to help you get started managing your network’s servers. Note that much of the 4 Networking For Dummies, 7th Edition information in the Windows Server 2003 chapter applies to Windows 2000 as well, since the two are similar. Though the specific details may vary, the concepts are the same.
This part also has a chapter on Macintosh networking, explaining the subtle nuances of incorporating Macintosh computers into your network.
Part V: TCP/IP and the Internet
TCP/IP is the most common protocol used for networking today, so the chapters in this part show you how to use it. First, you’ll learn how to safely connect your network to the Internet. Then you’ll learn the ugly details of how IP addresses work so you’ll be able to understand what an IP address such as 192.168.168.30 means and how a subnet mask such as 255.255.255.0 works.
Finally, you’ll learn how to set up one of the most important TCP/IP services: DHCP, which automatically assigns IP addresses to the computers on your network.
Part VI: The Part of Tens
This wouldn’t be a For Dummies book without a collection of lists of interesting snippets: ten network commandments, ten network gizmos only big networks need, ten big network mistakes, and more!
