Navigation

From a standpoint of normal navigation, NT4 has a very similar look and feel to Windows 95. At least that is true once a user is logged in. The login process is a user’s first clue they aren’t in Win 9x anymore. Assuming that Win 9x is on a network, a user logging into Win 9x is presented with a name and password prompt. Hitting the ESC key at that point says, “go on and boot without loading the network components”. In NT/W2K, there is no such option. No correct name and password = no access, even to local resources (files, printers, etc.).

[spacer]Network System Design

NT/W2K
was designed from the ground up for networking. If you have to install NT on a computer that will truly be stand alone, with no Network Interface Card, you MUST select the “NIC” MS LoopBack as a “NIC”, or NT will not install. W2K will install this automagically for you at the time of installation.


To log into NT the user must press CTRL-ALT-DEL at the same time, which brings up the WINLOGON applet. The user MUST present a valid name and password that has not expired to successfully get into the computer. After any applications found in the start up menu are loaded, NT 4 (and Windows 2000) looks almost exactly like Win 9x.
