This manual aims to organize NT's GUI interface, dialogue boxes, and a multitude of DOS-shell commands into an easy reference for anyone who uses or manages an NT system. It features a tagged call-out approach to documenting the GUI as well as real-life examples of command usage and strategies for problem solving, with an emphasis on networking. It is intended to be as useful to the single-system home user as to the administrator of a 1000-de corporate network.
