Beginning SharePoint® 2007 Administration: Windows® SharePoint® Services 3.0 and Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007

Book Description

While the main focus of this book is on SharePoint administration, you will also learn how to customize SharePoint by creating templates and using SharePoint Designer to enhance the look and feel of SharePoint sites. Microsoft MVP and author Göran Husman explores the differences between Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) and Windows SharePoint Services (WSS), helps you decide if you need only WSS or if you should also implement MOSS, and much more.
