good, but...

Be careful about using the source code for this book. Mr. Eckel honestly warns readers (p. 17) that he "makes no representation about the suitability of this software for any purpose" and shall not be made liable for all kinds of damages, even if he has "been advised of the possibility of such damages." In other words, the code is not guaranteed to work. (Of course, this is habitual legal staff, but...)

Title: Mastering Active Directory for Windows Server 2003

Nothing to Master...

I bought the book because of the word "Mastering" in the title. The first five chapters are on X.500, NDS, and NT Domain background. A few hundred more pages guide you with pictures through simple configurations within the mmc. I was expecting more in the way of sysvol, registry, and AD integration into NT Server. I was also hoping for a more detailed guide to AD design and migration... which is probabaly what 98% of Active Directory book buyers want.
Next time I'll start with the Windows 2000 Resource Kit first. Most of the answers are there.
