9780789722034: Special Edition Using Windows 98 (2nd Edition)

Special Edition Using Windows 98 Second Edition covers new features such as Internet Explorer 5 and Internet Connection Sharing. Now that Windows 98 has been available for over a year, many new insightful tips have been discovered that weren't known at the time of the original release. This book highlights those tips, providing exclusive and unique information that isn't readily found elsewhere. Each chapter has an added section covering a key related utility or third-party software package. See how to go beyond the basics and get more productive using WinZip for file compression and archiving, McAfee AntiVirus, Y2K Testing software to check the system BIOS, QuickView Plus for viewing files of almost any type, Web search utilities, and much more! A different utility relating to the topic of the chapter is covered at the end of every chapter.

Review:

Windows 98, Second Edition, is the fastest and most capable version of Microsoft's consumer operating system, short of Windows Millennium Edition (a.k.a. Windows Me). The oddly titled Special Edition Using Microsoft Windows 98, Second Edition, documents most aspects of the operating system fully and in about as much detail as anyone (short of a knowledgeable power user or network administrator) could want.

This book is largely a reprint of its predecessor (which stands to reason, since many of the improvements to Windows 98 SE are under-the-hood performance tweaks such as improved hardware support) and retains the earlier edition's excellent prose. It's well suited to anyone who suspects Windows can be made to do something but needs help figuring out how.

Most of the new material deals with the Internet Explorer 5 suite, which didn't ship with the first Windows 98 release. The Internet tools get clear, easy-to-follow coverage. The book does have one glaring problem: it makes no mention of Internet Connection Sharing, one of Windows 98 SE's chief attractions. A book about Windows 98 SE really ought to cover this useful feature. But on balance, if you don't already have a Windows 98 book and you don't need to configure a machine for Internet sharing, this book is a decent choice. --David Wall

Topics covered: Most features of Microsoft Windows 98 SE (including its means of managing files, running applications, displaying data, and connecting to networks), including the Internet. The members of the Internet Explorer 5 suite--Outlook Express, Internet Explorer, FrontPage Express, NetMeeting, and the rest--get lots of attention.
