    Post System Administration Guidance for Windows 2000 Professional

    The NIST has a security guide for you Windows 2000 Pro admins.

    The statment in part:
    "The document is intended to assist the users and system administrators of Windows 2000 Professional systems in configuring their hosts by providing configuration templates and security checklists. The document introduces secure configuration recommendations for setting up some popular Windows applications, such as Symantec Norton AntiVirus, Network Associates McAfee, and F-Secure Anti-Virus virus scanners, Microsoft IE and Netscape Communicator web browsers, Microsoft Outlook and Eudora e-mail clients, and Microsoft Office 2000 Professional productivity software."

    Nice .inf files and security recomandations. Some of this has been posted befor, but this set of downloads has template files included and the PDF's.
