In addition to the hardware listed in Table 5.5, Microsoft recommends running NT 4 Server on only the hardware in its Hardware Compatibility List (HCL). You’ll find the HCL at www.microsoft.com/hwtest/hd/. If the hardware you are trying to use with Windows NT Server or Workstation isn’t on the HCL and you call Microsoft with a problem, you may have support difficulties.

Available Client Software


The nicest feature of Windows NT is less a feature than a fact of the state of networking today. If you implement Windows NT Server on your network,


chances are you have Windows 95/98 as your client. All Windows 95/98 and Windows NT workstations install the Microsoft Client for Microsoft Networks by default whenever a network card is installed in a client workstation. This client enables the workstation to access any machine running a Microsoft operating system with networking components (for example, Windows NT Server or Workstation or Windows 95/98). This client must be installed to access the resources of a Windows NT network. Really the only client operating systems that can access a Windows NT network without additional gateway software on the server (such as the products for NetWare that were mentioned earlier) are Windows 95/98 and Windows NT versions of the Microsoft Client for Microsoft Networks.
