Having bought or browsed a number of books on configuring Win 2000 Server, none I've seen so far have covered the installation of a domain controller particularly well.

I'm seeking a recommendation for a book that covers:

- installation and configuration of a Windows 2000 domain controller
- the set up of a secondary Windows 2000 server on the same network as a backup domain controller
- synchronised folders

(and possibly:
- the set up of a secondary server as a backup MS Exchange server.)

Please do not respond if you're not sure if these areas are covered.

The intended implementation is:
- small (30 employee) sales business
- 2 servers dividing the load of
  - mail services (Exchange)
  - file sharing (CRM databases and user files)
  - logon authentication

i have this set and it is awesome. It covers all the topics. Books you want to see in those are Deployment guide and Operations guide. I dont know if you can buy just 2 of those or you have to buy the entire set. I have the entire set. I strongly recommend it.

I think what I'm looking for is too specific and will probably have to resort to buying several volumes of the guides to cover the areas I want to read up on.  Many thank adonis1976!
