471-2Text correction
Under "Distribution and Replication," the section beginning at the bottom of page 71, incorrect information is given regarding Active Directory for Windows 2000.

The PDC/BDC single master system applied to Windows NT 4, not to Windows 2000 as stated in the text.

To correct the paragraph, replace the beginning of the second sentence, "When AD first appeared,..." with "Prior to the introduction of AD,..."
On page 72, replace "Windows 2000" in the third sentence with "Windows NT 4," and change the final sentence of the paragraph to read "...changed dramatically with the introduction of Active Directory in Windows Server 2000."

None of these errors affect the information given about Windows Server 2008.

222Text correction
In the last paragraph, the second sentence, "Here you can load device drives..." should read:
"Here you can load device drivers..."

At the bottom of the page, after the heading "CONFIG.XML" "SCANSATE" should be "SCANSTATE"
