Friday Sessions to Address Several Areas of Interest

Several interesting sessions have been scheduled for Friday's morning breakouts. The sessions address the Education First initiative from Pacific Bell, a panel disscussion of operating environments, Windows 95 Policies and Profiles, and managing help desks.

Michael Todd from Pacific Bell will give an update on the Education First initiative which is being used by many school agencies to connect their schools to the Internet using no-cost ISDN lines. If your district or school isn't yet connected to cyberspace, you might want to learn more about this opportunity. Sunset South

A roundtable discussion of Novell and Windows NT Operating environments will be moderated by Eric Boutwell and Warren Williams. System engineers from both Novell and Microsoft will be on hand to address technical issues. Plan on attending this information-packed session if you want to learn more about which operating environment is best suited for you. Sunset North.

Interested in learning about using the User Profiles and System Policies features of Windows 95 to control the appearance and operation of Windows 95 network clients? Darryl La Gace and Addison Ching will show you how to use the User Profiles and System Policies features to limit what a Windows 95 client can have access to. This is a sure-fire way to prevent those students from shelling to DOS and deleting sensitive files! Joshua.

Bonnie Matson will show you how to successfully manage a help desk operation. If you are involved with a help desk or are planning to set one up, Bonnie will give you the secret of how to do it correctly. Oasis North.
