Hi ya
My name is john and i have recently obtained a book called Asp with databases for beginners by john kauffman. It is an interesting book but as a beginner i am not sure about whether i have the correct software to do the exercises. I currently have winxp. The book however only refers to win2000,98 and nt. I currently have visual web developer 2005 plus microsoft access plus notepade for codings. Can anyone tell me whether i have the right software or not. The book refers to personal web servers, ado etc. It would appear that the book was published several years ago. I need to know if i am missing any software before i start. The copy also refers to MDAC as a download. I have found that winxp has its own. Am i right.

Thank you
john
