Someone made a comment least year in these groups that it wasn't
difficult to disable things like My Pictures and My Music redirection
in SBS 2008, but i can't find any documentation on how that is
done...Is it really that easy and i'm not seeing it, or is it more
difficult than he made it seem...

The SBS wizard creates a group policy behind the scenes. You can edit that
group policy if you so choose.

SBS 2008 Unleashed is a very good book. The main author is an SBS MVP and
other MVPs have contributed to the content. After reading your post, I did
head to Amazon to check out the comments and my takeaway is this:

1) A few people said it go into enough depth. But I disagree. This book
can easily cover the "day to day" knowledge you need with SBS. If you need
more in-depth knowledge on SharePoint, IIS, or Exchange, it means you are
either not using the wizards (bad) or have moved beyond the scope that *any*
single book could ever hope to cover. Each one of those products has books
dedicated to it, so expecting a SBS book to somehow condense that info and
yet retain a level of detail these reviews desire si simply never going to
happen.

2) I get the distinct impression that a few of the other negative reviews
were written because the person writing the review didn't understand the
book or SBS in general. Now SBS does a pretty good job of wizardizing many
daily tasks (not perfect...but very good.) But it *is* still a server so it
requires someone with technical proficiency, some self motivation to use
Bing and Google, and the ability to read a chapter without getting
distracted. No business should be tasking their "office manager" with
maintaining the server, and if they do then you get reviews such as those on
Amazon from time to time because the book is simply beyond the comprehension
of this person. That may be harsh, but I think it is better than setting up
false expectations.

So there you go. It is a good book and one I have no problems recommending.

Excellent information from both of you...i have complete faith and
trust in Russ, having worked with him over the years so i knew that
the comments didn't mesh with his suggestion...i do like the unleased
book, but i appreciate information from many sources (this group,
experts exchange, google in general, etc.) and having more than one
book is right down my alley...
