Author Notes

Scott Archer lives in Indianapolis, IN with his wife Tiffany, daughter Kira (4), and son Ethan (2). He graduated from Purdue University in 1996 with a BS in Computer and Information Science and has been in the computer business for 9 years. He is currently a Senior Consultant for FrontWAY, a national network and eBusiness consulting company where he's been working zombified recently because some book has been consuming his sleep time! Windows 2000 has been installed on his laptop since Beta 1, and has been his core focus since that time. Scott holds MCSE+Internet, MCT, and CCNA certifications and plans to continue on both Microsoft and Cisco tracks. When he is not in front of a computer, he enjoys watching and playing basketball, doing home improvement projects, trying to figure out non-computer related hobbies, and playing with the kids. If you have any non-computer related hobby ideas, please send them to sarcher@frontway.com. You can send questions or comments about the book there too!
