  Asked By: Sanchay    Date: Jun 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 587

I just joined this group and I am having a hard time finding the
information I am looking for using the search.

I just recently set up a new Windows 2003 server and my fairly small
company already has a Windows 2000 server running. It has limited use
since we use Novell for most of our servers. It does have SharePoint
installed on it for our intranet, but it was set up a long time ago
and we want to start over on this new server. Someone else, who is
unavailable, set up the older server. I am very unfamiliar with
SharePoint and the documentation that I have been reading isn't giving
me the information I am looking for either. What I want to know is do
you know of a good book or other resource that is laid out in a linear
fashion, from beginning to more advanced? I understand better that way.

I don't know if I have given you enough information about what I am
looking for.

I would suggest the Microsoft Products & Technologies Resource Kit

A good "real beginners guide" is Microsoft Windows Sharepoint Services
Step by Step by Olga Londer, Todd Bleeker, Steve Cawood, Penelope
Coventry, James Edelen.

One of the major problems I have found is finding  good Sharepoint
Services specific info. A lot of the stuff here and in the Resource Kit
is Sharepoint Portal Server centred and isn't relevant to a small scale
WSS deployment in a small shop.

IMO there is a gapping hole in the market for a WSS-specific book to
help administrators of small systems to get the best out of their WSS
deployment without burying them under loads of irrelevant
Portal-specific stuff.......

I like the book “Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft SharePoint 2003 in 10 Minutes” for the best basic overview. Then you can get other books to get more advanced later on.
