So far, you have seen how to configure both WSS and MOSS specific settings. In this chapter, you will learn about more advanced administration, such as how to manage user profiles, import properties from the Active Directory, configure and manage global search and indexing, and more. This chapter is important if you want to master SharePoint's more advanced features. It contains a lot of details, and a lot of step-by-step instructions on how to configure these settings. Note that some of these settings will apply to both pure WSS installations and MOSS farms, while others only apply to MOSS; be sure to read the title of each section carefully.
