under NET SHARE heading

I forgot to mention that in Windows Server 2003 the NET SHARE command has a new option: /GRANT You must explicitely include this option when you want to grant share permissions. This option was omitted from the text by mistake. Sorry!

In the area "With WEEKLY" under "/d Day,[Day...]

The Syntax With WEEKLY MON-SUN[, MON-SUN...] implies to me you may create a task using syntax such as SCHTASKS /CREATE /TN test2 /SC WEEKLY /D MON-FRI /RU "system" /TR test.exe but Windows 2003 will not accept /D MON-FRI. It will accept: SCHTASKS /CREATE /TN test2 /SC WEEKLY /D MON,TUE,WED,THU,FRI /RU "system" /TR test.exe
