 (c)About the Author
Mike Walsh has been a SharePoint MVP continuously since October 2002. He 
works as a Technology Consultant for Logica in Finland having spent all but one 
year of his working life living and working in various European countries outside his 
native Britain. 
Mike became an MVP for the SharePoint Team Services (STS) product through 
actively sharing his STS knowledge in the newsgroup for that product and has 
continued to be active in SharePoint newsgroups and (now) forums, mainly for 
Windows SharePoint Services for both version 2.0 and 3.0. He has worked on the 
?Ask The Experts? stand at several Microsoft European conferences over the years. 
He was an early beta tester for both Office 2003 including WSS 2.0 and Office 2007 
including WSS 3.0.
This is Mike?s first full book. He has earlier written a chapter of a book that was a 
joint effort by a number of SharePoint MVPs.

***End Dedication***
It?s normal at this point to thank wives/husbands (plural?) and kids for having put 
up with the writer during the period in which he or she has been writing the book. I 
always thought that this was all a bit unnecessary until, that is, I actually had to 
write a book myself.
Not only was a room (and several computers) totally out-of-bounds to my wife for 
several hours a day[md]and every day for a period of several months[md]but she 
also had to put up with me shouting, ?I?m working!,? when she knocked on the 
door, even if all she wanted was to say that lunch was ready. As if that weren?t 
enough, I spent most of the rest of the time going through the next chapter in my 
head, so I now understand all those other authors! So, I, too, will start by thanking 
my wife for putting up with me these past several months.
I?d also like to thank the SharePoint MVPs as a whole for putting up a bar of 
excellence that I?d find easy to get under if I was doing limbo dancing but which I 
find far beyond my modest skills even when attempting the equivalent of the 
Fosbury flop. 
In addition to the general thanks to MVPs, I?d also like specially to thank the two 
SharePoint MVPs mentioned by name in the book (Reza Alirezaei and Jeremy 
Sublett); their responses to my questions helped me complete a couple of sections. 
To Berlin?s SharePoint MVP Michael Greth for helping me to get a better picture of 
how MOSS 2007 adds equivalent foreign language versions of pages. The words I 
use to describe this are, however, entirely my own, so don?t blame him.
Thanks to Phil Wicklund as a representative for all the people out there who give up 
their own time to provide free web parts and tools to the SharePoint Community 
and thanks also to the people from a couple of commercial companies who helped 
me out when I needed help. You know who you are.
Finally, thanks to the people at Sams (especially Brook Farling) who took a chance 
with an author with no writing track record bar a single chapter and most of all 
thanks to those of you who bought the book. I hope my enthusiasm for the product 
(and many useful screen shots!) makes up for my lack of writing skills.

When I was a boy the Teach Yourself series specialized in language books.
They were hard-backed but paperback-sized books that were intended for someone 
who knew nothing about the language, but by the end of the book if the reader 
made the effort to study all the vocabulary; grammar; translations and reading 
texts, the reader would have a fair knowledge of the language and a good basis for 
further study.
In a sense, while the books were for Beginners to the language, they were in 
modern terms Beginner/Intermediate books because they didn?t stop at the ?a few 
things you need to know on your holiday? level.
???Mike: Can we re-work this Introduction so it provides a few essential 
elements that an Introduction should? We need these HC headings:
Target Audience for This Book (this tells readers who the book is meant 
Organization of This Book (you should list each Hour and give a quick 
description of what it?s about)
Conventions Used in This Book (if you used any for menu choices, ie.)
Thanks. Sheri
In those days I didn?t get much of a sense that the writer knew her/his audience, 
but recently I had to brush up a language I hadn?t used for years and I became 
aware when working through the Teach Yourself book that the reason the story in 
the reading texts was interesting was because it was written based on the book 
writer?s experience in teaching this language to people with my background of a 
connection to the country where the language was spoken.
With the book in your hands, I?m trying to do much the same kind of thing. It?s 
based on my experience both in using the various versions of Windows SharePoint 
Services throughout the years and on my experience of reading and answering 
innumerable messages in the SharePoint newsgroups and thus being aware of 
common problems and misunderstandings. 
The book reflects those years of experience by giving considerable space early on to 
issues that have consistently confused people over the years and by including 
occasional notes and hints where my experience from the newsgroups tells me such 
asides will be useful.
This book is a book for people who when they start reading it are beginners in 
SharePoint 2007 but by the time they have finished reading it are likely to be 
Intermediate level in at least some aspects of it.
???Mike: (yellow stuff) Put this into the ?Target Audience for This Book? 
section. Thanks. Sheri
There are two main products that fit that ?SharePoint 2007? description ? Windows 
SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 
(MOSS 2007).
This book will concentrate almost entirely on the ?smaller? of those two products 
(WSS 3.0) because apart from it being considerably cheaper (WSS 3.0 itself is free) 
than MOSS 2007, it is simpler to learn and ? despite some Microsoft peoples? 
attempts to pitch MOSS 2007 as the only useful SharePoint product - is a full and 
useful product in its own right.
Even if you do intend to move on to MOSS 2007, everything you learn about WSS 
3.0 will be of use to you as MOSS 2007 is based entirely on WSS 3.0. MOSS 2007 is 
in fact a super-set of WSS 3.0.
Just like that old Teach Yourself book of mine, this book covers all the different 
aspects of working with WSS 3.0 ? with one exception (Programming) which is 
something that probably over 90% of users of SharePoint systems never consider 
doing and which is in any case well covered by several specialist ?Development? 
You should therefore find this book useful whether you are a budding SharePoint 
Administrator; a user who will be having some administrative responsibilities; a 
user who will be providing content or a user who will mostly be using content 
provided by others. 
You can even also usefully read it if you are a person with ASP.NET 2.0 
programming skills but no SharePoint experience as this book will help you to better 
understand the background which those SharePoint development books often 
assume. It will also give you a feeling for what you don?t need to program because 
it?s already either included or is available elsewhere.
The full-time Administrator will in time need to follow up with a specialist book on 
administration but for many of the other reader groups (except the Programmer!) 
this book will be enough for their needs for quite a while and maybe forever.
Organization of This Book
Rather than making this a reference book with every List listed and every 
parameter described, I?ve written this book as a Teaching book based on my 
experience of using SharePoint products for over 6 years. I have thus, instead of 
dealing with everything, picked out a few more commonly used elements and 
described them and this in turn has given me the space needed to discuss areas 
that many books of this size don?t touch such as using add-in products; sample 
templates and third-party web parts with SharePoint sites. 
???Mike: (blue stuff) Put this into the ?Organization? section. Sheri
Some books take the approach of building a web site for a particular work area. 
This isn?t one of them. Instead I aim to give you a broad overview of the building 
blocks that are available to you when creating your own sites. I use these building 
blocks throughout the book to build and add to a set of test sites. 
I have developed those sites, while I have written the book and I wrote the book in 
order, so if you follow it in order you ought to recognize in your test system most of 
the screen prints that are included in the book.
In the long-term, I think this is a method that will pay off more for you than being 
restricted to just one solution area. I do however, about halfway through (Hour 9) 
consider one such solution area and how the things we have learnt about up to and 
including Hour 8 can be used to create a set of sites suitable for that solution area. 
The real world is after all out there and even quality building blocks need to be used 
in such a way that they suit the demands of that real world. Learning what sort of 
things to use for that sample solution area should help you in creating sites for your 
own real world scenario.
Hardware and Software Used to Write This Book
???Mike: My heading OK here? Thanks. Sheri
Finally a brief word about my working environment when writing the book:
***Begin bulleted list***
	[lb]	I had a desktop running XPPro and Office 2003 where I wrote the chapters 
(using the publisher?s Word 2003 template) and which I also used as a client 
PC when writing the sections on using Office 2003 applications with WSS 3.0
	[lb]	I had a portable running Vista Ultimate and Office 2007 which I used as a 
client PC both for normal browser access to the WSS 3.0 site and also for 
writing the sections on using Office 2007 applications with WSS 3.0.
	[lb]	I had a MacBook (OS X Tiger) running the Parallels Virtual Machine software 
and in which I had a Virtual Machine on which I had installed WSS 3.0+SP1 
on top of Windows Server 2003 R2. I also used the MacBook to create the 
Virtual Machine running Windows Server 2008 (and WSS 3.0) which was 
needed for Appendix 2.
***End bulleted list***
The screen prints were mostly done using the SnagIt product from TechSmith 
( and the SnagIt Editor, which is 
part of that product, was used to reduce the size of some screen prints. I heartily 
recommend SnagIt to you. I had it installed on both my Client PCs.
Other screen prints were done using the free Macintosh utility Portrait, which comes 
with the Macintosh Operating System OS X. These were typically screen prints of 
actions performed on the server.
That?s it. Good luck with your exploration into SharePoint 2007!
