win 2k Newbie guide....
I have the terrible task of spending 4 hours on Saturday trying to educate a particulary clueless user on how to use win 2k (file sharing, offline files, printing & day to day use).
I've had a quick look and can't find any 'Newbie' friendly Win2k guides.
My question is...
does anyone have any good 'newbie friendly' guides to win2k or do I have to spend 4 hours of hell tring to educate them without any printable info?
Thanks in advance 4 any help.
Cheers (& have good weekends!)

A good reference book that i have used is "The Complete Reference Windows 2000" by Kathy ivens and Kenton Gardinier.
Hope thats what you were looking for

Well, I usually spend my weekends teaching completely dumb users the art of turning on a PC, I make enough money to get myself new stuff every week.
So, why botter looking for printed info, just go and teach him the same stuff every saturday!!

I work long & hard all week, this is a cash-in-hand kinda thing,
as much as I'd love to string some more dosh out of this.. educating the 'newbie' .. I prefer to undertake in very small doses and in therefore, I want to keep it short & sweet.
